Etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest
HISTORY & FACTS:
1,150 cubic yards of cement went into the park.
50 people had a hand in building the skatepark.
Each yard of cement at the park weighs approximately 4,000 pounds, or 2 tons.
Only 263 days elapsed from groundbreaking to completion of the park.
Skatepark construction to completion took 121 days.
The park hosts 60,000 visitors each year, or roughly 1 near sell-out game at Angel Stadium plus a full house for the Ducks at Honda Center.
The park was built with 15,500 man-hours of labor.
There are 543 feet of round metal coping in the park.
There are 622 feet of rideable ledge in the park.
There are 92,200 linear feet of rebar in the park. This is the reinforcement bar (rebar) that keeps the concrete from bending and breaking. That's over 17 miles which is enough to stretch from the park to the ocean in Laguna Beach.
Total weight of the park is 4,600,000 pounds, or 2,300 tons.

Etnies is my second house. Etnies has made my life a better life. People mostly go to vans, but van doesn't have as much room, has worse ramps, crappy extra pads, and much more. That's why Etnies is the best skate park around. So next time, go to Etnies.
Easily the best public skateboard park in Orange County maybe even Southern California. Professionally managed and maintained. All terrain good times and something to challenge you no matter what your skill level. Beginner to Advanced. Bring your safety equipment because you are going to need it and a parent to sign your waiver if you're under 18. Full on radical, get some!
I love this place. I'm not interested in the street course, and some of the bowls are a bit too advanced for me, but the flow course is the best of its kind I've found, and one of the bowls is just right for me.
The reviews are true. This is the best skatepark in OC.
