24 Best Skateparks in Oregon

Oregon is known for its many outdoor activities, ranging from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to hiking and camping in the summer. But there’s one activity that Oregonians love just as much as any of those: skating.The state has produced some of the best skateparks in the world, including the first ever DIY skatepark built under Burnside Bridge in Portland. 

The gnarliest “Tigard Skatepark” is now open,Dreamland’s new location, which they’ve been working on for several months was just completed this past weekend and it features an amazing pipe grind bowl as well a bunch of other fun amenities. I can’t wait until all these pro riders come through town so we get our chance to see who has what tricks up their sleeve

Oregon’s skateparks are renowned for their quality and variety, offering something for everyone from beginners to experienced riders. Here are our top 25 picks.

Burnside Skatepark-The World’s first DIY Skatepark.

The Burnside Skatepark is located in Portland, Oregon, United States under the east end of the Burnside Bridge. It was the first do-it-yourself concrete skatepark project in the world and has since spawned other similar projects across the globe. The skatepark is free to enter and does not require any safety gear such as helmets, knee-pads, or elbow-pads.

The park is maintained through donations and is regarded as an on-going project. It features many hips, pools, pyramids, and vertical sections that make it a popular destination for skateboarders of all skill levels. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just learning the ropes, it is a great place to enjoy some time on your board.

It was created in 1990 by a group of skateboarders who were looking for a place to skate all year round. With a few bags of cement, they started building obstacles, including banks and a mini bowl pocket. They eventually struck a deal with construction workers building the I-84 on-ramp, who helped them expand the park. 

It is a fun time with friends, but make sure you bring an extra six pack for the troll.Today, the Burnside Skatepark is widely considered one of the best DIY skateparks in the world and attracts skaters from all over. It is truly an iconic Portland landmark.

Location: SE 2nd Ave, Portland, OR 97232.

Tigard Skatepark

The park was named in honor of former Tigard Mayor Jim Griffith who was an advocate for Tigard youth and the skate park project. 

Many foundations, including the Tony Hawk Foundation, paid for the construction of the skate park. Tigard skatepark is a great place to skate during the day. However, at night it can be quite dark and difficult to see. The only people skating at night are usually in the lit up part by the street lights. I think they should push to get night skating going on until at least 2:30 like the bars LOL. It would be great to have more lighting so that people can skate at night.
