Tyler Skatepark Overview
When the proposal for the Millennium Falcon addition was first pitched by Evergreen Skateparks, the entire community put their support behind the creative and unique idea that they hoped could set the local skateboarding scene apart from the rest of the scenes in the US.
Needless to say, it worked!
The Millennium Falcon design added a large number of transition-style elements in the true Evergreen signature fashion. The majority of the park consists of endless bowls, pockets, banks, and corners, all equipped with grindable coping.
At the peak of the skatepark, which makes up the nose of the spacecraft, you will find a two-faced quarterpipe. Dropping in from the angle gives you two different options, both consisting of street-style obstacles.
Hang to the right and you will find a beautiful hubba that can be approached from either side. This is ideal for both regular and goofy-footed skaters who want to approach the extra-long hubba from a position in which they are comfortable.
Hang to the left and you will find a nice stair set to clear equipped with a smooth handrail that is ideal for grinds and board slides. If street-style obstacles are not your thing, you can still drop in from the quarterpipe and skip the hubba and stair set by flowing down a steep bank to gain speed before cruising into the endless bowls, banks, and corners that wait for you in the body of the ship.
Before reaching the center of the body of the spacecraft, there is a small section with two quarterpipes on either side. One is a curved quarterpipe, and the other is more typical. Between these two pipes, there is a manual pad that contains an elevated grindable ledge next to it. Flow between the two quarterpipes and hit the manual pad, and if you dare, transition from the manual pad up onto the upper ledge.
The main area of the skatepark contains the majority of all the bowls, banks, corners, and other transition-style skate elements that flow park skaters love. In the middle of the flow park area, there is a small circular bowl and two volcanoes. The volcanoes are perfect for skaters who want to pop a quick stall or handplant before coasting back into one of the many surrounding bowls.
The Tyler Faulkner Skatepark is open from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 seven days a week, 365 days a year, and as weather permits.
