Rancho Penasquitos Skatepark Overview
Rancho Penasquitos Skatepark is the largest San Diego skatepark that’s mostly street-focused. There’s plenty of room and you can almost always find a corner with some space to do your thing.
The fenced-in park has bathrooms and a small shaded area near them for observers. The skatepark has several tiers. There are tons of banks and transitions that bring you up and down the various levels.
Most of the park is arranged around a giant open plaza bordered by banks and stairs, with handrails and hubbas down several of them. One stand-out feature is a bank with a concrete picnic table down it.
Basically everywhere you look there are things to skate and the street plaza area is arranged so that there are tons of interesting lines to be had. Sometimes the flat can seem a bit too expansive, but on the flip side, that gives everyone plenty of room.
One nice touch is the shade structures around the edges of the park for when you need a break from that endless Southern California sun (we’re not complaining).
Rancho Penasquitos Skatepark has a simple concrete-mini ramp with a spine, which is something you don’t see too often in newer parks. Next to the mini-ramp is a large funbox, with hips, hubbas, rails, and ledges.
If Ranch Penasquitos Skatepark isn’t open for some reason or your just looking to skate something nearby, the Poway Skatepark with its fun snake run is just a few miles east.
