Rosemead Skatepark Overview
Rosemead is a city of about 50,000 people in the West San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County. Rosemead Skatepark is located in Rosemead Park, between the local aquatic center and high school.
Designed by Spohn Ranch Skateparks, a Southern California-based skatepark company that builds parks around the country, Rosemead opened in 2016.
The 12,000 square-foot park blends classic street plaza features with ample transition terrain, including several large quarterpipes and a snake run that has a portion that doubles as a mini-half.
Rosemead Skatepark’s overall shape is an elongated triangle. When you first enter the park from the parking lot, you’ll find a large quarterpipe with a banked extension in the middle, which allows for airs off the quarters into the bank, or just straight bank or transition tricks.
From the quarterpipe, you can either head through a long street plaza or head into the snake run, which is closer to the aquatic center.
The street plaza follows the outer edge of the park and has a bend in the middle that makes it resemble a boomerang in overall shape. The plaza has a ton of street features, including banks, stairs, hubbas, rails, ledges, and fun boxes.
The snake run has a shallow section with no coping, which is great for beginners learning to ride transitions. This section then flows into a deeper area with steel coping.
While the park doesn’t have a large bowl, there’s something for everyone here, and the skatepark is a nice addition to the pantheon of Los Angeles skateparks.
