McVicker Canyon Skatepark Overview
Lake Elsinore bills itself as an international action sports destination and backs that up with three high-quality skateparks. McVicker Canyon Skatepark was rebuilt in 2017, replacing an older park that offers a collection of modular ramps and other skate features.
The previous park was heavily graffitied and conditions had otherwise deteriorated prompting a redo. Grindline Skateparks designed and built the new park, a significant upgrade from the previous park.
The new McVicker Canyon Skatepark is a concrete in-ground style park. It includes a large bowl for advanced skaters and a small butterfly-shaped bowl for beginners (or in my case, for warming up).
Wrapping around these two bowls is a long snake run with a variety of coping, hips, and pockets. The snake run has steel coping and pool coping in places, and once section with burly rock tiles at the lip. Inside the snake run is a set of pool stairs and a love seat.
The street plaza at McVicker Canyon Skatepark includes quarterpipes, banks, and a range of standard street park fare, including hubbas, rails, and an A-frame. one end has a distinctive bank with a narrow ledge on top that’s great for grinds and rail slides. There’s also a bank with a curb a the top and a gap in the middle at the edge of the plaza.
