Palm Lane Skatepark Overview
Palm Lane Skatepark is located in Anaheim’s western neighborhoods and is one of two skateparks in the city that were funded with donations from Disneyland Resort. The other skatepark is located at Schweitzer Park. The parks were a great addition to Orange County’s skatepark offerings.
Palm Lane Skatepark is situated between Palm Lane Elementary and Ball Junior High in Anaheim, next to some sports fields.
While fairly compact, the park has a nice flow and includes both traditional street features and transition features. These include banks, rails, ledges, hubbas, and manual pads.
The park is bookended with quarterpipes. The signature element is a gap formed by two round banks that are painted to resemble oranges, a reference to the area’s historys in orange farming.
Generally speaking, the park’s features are fairly mellow and intended for use by local skaters. Spohn Ranch states that they designed the park for beginner and intermediate, not professional skaters–of which there are plenty in the Orange County area.
