Burnside Skate Park

1 SE 2nd Ave (E Burnside St)

Built without permission, by skateboarders and later sanctioned by the city, Burnside is the preeminent example of action. Burnside's unique growth and evolution -through the sweat and blood of a handful of dedicated individuals-have matured into one of the best skateparks in the world. Burnside and its creators are true pioneers, setting the stage for community built skateparks across the country.

Great to see the city of Portland worked together with the skaters to allow this handmade park to remain permanent. The spot has become legendary and I just had to stop by while in town. Props to all the locals who built it over the years, and who still build there today!

Very interesting and fun local skating area. Skater built, in a grungy area with the same sort of vibe. Has good parties for special events and a flowy skating area

It's not so much nice to live there as it is to have fun there with the skateboard
