Schweitzer Skatepark Overview
Along with Palm Lane Skatepark, Schweitzer Skatepark is one of two Anaheim skateparks built in 2016 with financial support from Disneyland Resort.
Located in Schweitzer Park, the skatepark was designed and built by California-based Spohn Ranch Skateparks.
One side of the park is edged with a quarterpipe that has an extension on one side and pool coping. In front of the quarterpipe is an A-frame with a hubba and a small curved bank.
The end of the park opposite the quarterpipe is a large circle with a grassy spot in the middle. This was initially intended to wrap around tree, but the tree’s roots made it difficult to build the park and it was removed. A sapling was planted in its place.
The circle is elevated from the area where the A-frame is located, with banks going up to the loop on both sides. One of these banks has a straight ledge sticking out while the other one has a rail and angled ledges coming down the sides.
Here’s a video from Spohn Ranch of Scott Decenzo and Mike Piwowar ripping the park:
The 11.5-acre park is named in honor of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, renowned theologian, musician, philosopher, physician, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
