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.

Burnside has been on my 10 year old grandsons bucket list...check it off! This is such a cool park, even a cooler vibe. A must do for any serious sk8r.

This place is only for skaters who are sickening good. And NO. ITS NOT FOR SCOOTERS! Honestly it's for people who are out of my league but I had to check it off the bucket list.

Best park in Downtown. Popular. Very much for the intense skater. HUGE ramps. Crazy lines. Feels like it was made by the skaters who go there. Even just observing, it's awesome. Kind of sketchy, it's under a bridge. But it's a great time. Go with friends. Skate up. It's featured on Portlandia.

Brought my boy, couldnt ride, sadly, it aint a place for scooters. Coulda done without the smell of piss, too. An improvement since 1986, but still not inviting.

Nasty, smelt like trash. Was gonna let my kid play for a bit on a road trip passing through when a man came up to is and said that there were safer and cleaner parks to take him to. Wow!
