Burnside Skate Park
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.
Halloween at Burnside skatepark is not to be missed. It gets weird. It gets spooky. It's the most badass punk rock birthday party that could only take place under the gnarliest of bridges.
The last time I skated there, there were little no lights at all after dark. Good smooth skatepark.
One of America's iconic skate parks and home to gnar gnar skaters. Not for the beginner.
Awesome park. Lots of character. Def famous for a reason
Iconic skatepark! A must see for a skateboarder living in or visiting portland!
