Washington Park Skate Spot Overview
Designed by Kanten Russel at New Line Skateparks, Washington Park Skate Spot is the smaller of the two skateparks in Escondido. That said, it’s the only one in the town made of concrete and built to modern skatepark standards.
Overall, the park has a triangular shape and has elevated sections on either end — a quarterpipe with a deck on one side and a platform at the other end. In the center of the park is a triangular funbox with quarterpipes and banks on the sides, a manny box, and a curb across the top.
The wide quarterpipe has an interesting curved cutout in the middle that creates a small carvable pocket and many possibilities for hip airs and coping trickery.
Along the edges of the park, you’ll find several ledges to skate, an A-frame with matching hubba, and a quirky transitioned pyramid. There are also stairs, handrails, and other hubbas to skate.
