Scalzi Park Skatepark Overview
The first thing that stands out about the Scalzi Park Skatepark is that it has one of the most unique bowl designs in the United States. On top of that, there is also an additional second open bowl making Scalzi Park any bowl skater’s dream with plenty of room to simply roll and flow from one bowl to the other.
The primary bowl has a shape that cannot be put into words. It is almost like it is actually five different bowls pieced together that come together to create the shape of a gorilla on all fours. At one end of the bowl is a large pill-shaped half-bowl that shoots out into an elongated shallow curve that then flows down into two other small bowls.
The two other small bowls consist of one 270-degree perfect-circle bowl and a three-quarter rounded rectangle bowl. Basically, when we say this bowl is unique, we are not exaggerating, it is truly one of a kind.
The second open bowl is located adjacent to the primary bowl allowing for an easy transition from one to the other. This bowl rolls down from its shallow end to the deep end in the shape of a guitar.
The entrance to the bowl makes up the neck of the guitar shape which then is the pathway down to the deeper bowls that makes up the body of the guitar.
The design team at Grindline really did an amazing job making Scalzi park into a must-experience park for bowl skaters of all skill levels.
That being said, they didn’t forget about the freestyle street skaters. The street plaza has a good mix of ledges, manual pads, and a centrally placed stair set with a handrail that is ideal for safely practicing grinds while preparing yourself for some outside the park real street terrain.
Overall, if you are anywhere in the tri-state area or you are looking for a skate destination for an upcoming skateboarding road trip, Scalzi Park Skatepark may be worth the time, especially if you are an experienced bowl skater.
