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.
Love this place. Great pools and bowls. Always something new to try. The kids love it and the camps are great for learning a SoCal original sport I grew up with. Lake Forest is the best for allowing such a treasure in the city.
Awesome park lots of fun! Requires pads.
As a female quad rollerskater, I was really intimidated to go to a skatepark that is typically dominated by male skateboarders but everyone here has been so friendly. I'm just starting at skate parks but there is plenty to do here for all skill levels. Girls, get out here and let's skate! Bonus: it's free for Lake Forest residents!
Great park with tins of features and a friendly vibe. Street, flow, nice medium size pool, and the gnar cradle. You go getchoo some! 🔥
Nicest outdoor park I've seen.
