San Clemente Skatepark Overview
San Clemente Skatepark skatepark, built in 2002, has been the breeding ground for a generation of skate talent, including Ryan Sheckler. San Clemente is an action sports town, home to some of the world’s most famous surf breaks (Trestles).
Skaters in San Clemente are plentiful and the 14,000 square-foot park is barely big enough to contain them. In recent years, the San Clemente Skatepark Coalition has been advocating to expand the current park and build a second park in town.
The current park, also known as Ralphs Skatepark, offers a mix of street and trasition terrain. The park has three mini ramps, each with a third side enclosed to form bowl corners with the main walls. Two of the ramps are back to back to form a spine. The bowls all have steel coping.
The park also has a mellow flow bowl with three pockets connected with hips that’s good for people just learning to skate transitions.
The park’s street features are scattered throughout and well-integrated with the transition features. A fun box in the center of the park offers a tabletop, hips, hubbas, and rails. Other features include quarterpipes, stairs, hubbas, ledges, manny boxes, and handrails.
