The Moreno Valley Skatepark is a 4,000 square-foot outdoor concrete skatepark in Moreno Valley, California that first opened in 2019. The skatepark is packed with features, including a mini ramp and stair section that is well-liked by the local students at both the high school and community college.

Moreno Valley Skatepark Overview
Moreno Valley, California is a sizeable municipality located about 15 minutes outside Riverside, about 30 minutes south of San Bernardino, and 1-hour east of LA. The modestly-sized skatepark has quickly grown in the hearts of skaters in Moreno Valley since it first opened in 2019.
One of the highlights is the mini vert ramp section that can give a safe space for skaters to learn and adapt to vert-style skating before taking their moves to larger indoor and outdoor vert pipes located in the LA area.
Another feature that skaters appreciate is the wide stairs case with a long runway. The long runway can give skaters ample time to build up speed and to set their feet before clearing the stairs with a heel-flip or front-side shove-it.
The skatepark was built by the city of Moreno Valley at the request of the local high school and community college population. In the spring of 2018, a group of students organized a petition drive and gather approximately 982 signatures making the request that the city considers building a new skatepark.
After the petition was delivered to the city, many other residents began to speak out about the importance of having a skatepark in the community where children, teens, and adults could safely skate.
The City then was able to secure over $546,00 to commission the Spohn Ranch design and construction team to come up with a skatepark design that fit the budget, could be enjoyed by all skaters with varying degrees of skill levels, and was designed to be durable and longlasting. The main idea was to create a brand new concrete skatepark that would last a long time with very little required maintenance.
The Moreno Valley Skatepark is open year-round, seven days a week for all skaters who abide by the park rules and who wear their helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads at all times. Failure to comply with the park rules could result in a skater losing park privileges.
