I heard of a new "free" skatepark that recently opened in Burbank (SoCal). Does anyone know where it is, or have any other info? Thanx

It's kinda' small...I hear the new Glendale park is going to be better, but I think they haven't broken ground on it just yet.

Check out the new Laguna Niguel park; it's well worth the drive down!

That park looks cool! Wish we had more of Laguna Niguel type skateparks around LA and Ventura counties.

I hear ya. Id prefer a roll-in to a drop-in. For me, dropping in means a 50/50 chance of eating shit

Right-On Eddie! Representin' Old-School!
I just got back from checking out Burbank Skatepark. Its on corner of Oxnard & Clyborn (off Cahuenga) Its small with one bowl about 4' typical steel coping, and a open street area, with ledges, various banks, roll-ins, etc. Again, small, but nice. The advanced guys may be bored with it, but for an Old-fart like me, its perfect (fun). Pads are required, and not sure if there is a fee or not (was closed when I went by) Gonna skate it one night after work, then I will report back. Lay-ter, Guy

I barged into Berkeley Skatepark the day before yesterday. Some eco-kooks closed it down in December because they reported that high levels of Chromium six was found in the water seepage. Chromium schmomium. I hadn't skated that bowl for almost six months! And if you barge the gate after 6:00, it's totally safe because nobody is there. Not that I'd be so irreverent as to climb the very fence that tore a chunk outta my arm, but somebody did undo the bolts on the left hand side, so you can pull the fence out and climb underneath it. I had forgotten how much fun that big ass bowl is. When I was done skating I felt soooooo good. I felt like this.

Your right Big Dawg, the youngings are noticing the old school style. In fact, they seem to be really intrigued by it.
Anton and I were skating Camarillo last weekand and we were getting coments regarding are old school decks. They seem to really dig em, and we don't even try to promote it. All we have to do is be there.

That's part of the fun! Just show up and do what you do and people trip out--they act like they've never seen classic style before. Some popsicle stick riders just look at me like I'm some kind of anachronism or a ghost. But most folks seem to take a curiousity to a longhair gettin all surf style on a pig shape. I get a lot of "Where did you get that deck? Is it old or new-old? Where did you get those cool orange wheels?" I guess it's like what Steve Olsen (or was it Hacket?) said: "We're so old that what we're doing seems new."

Just got back from a session at Palmdale Skatepark with my Son. We had a blast, but its HOT up here in the high desert. Anyway I got lots of comments from the fruitbooters and the groms...."hey those are cool wheels!" (my soft Shogos) Seems like everytime we are at the park, some kid comments on my deck or wheels.
