Jim Griffith Memorial Skate Park
After a five-year, grassroots effort to get a skate park off the ground, the Jim Griffith Memorial Skate Park was officially opened in October 2007. Skate park supporters of all ages, along with Tigard Mayor Craig Dirksen and Skate Park Chairperson Rich Carlson, were present to open this Dreamland constructed park. Park components include 2 bowls, a rotating volcano top, and street features.
The skate park construction cost about $370,000. The task force raised $65,000 in cash and in-kind contributions and the City was awarded $150,000 in Oregon Park and Recreation Department matching funds for the park project. The City of Tigard picked up the remaining balance with park system development charge funds.
Intense skate park, definitely made for expert park skaters
It's a pretty okay skatepark a little big if your a beginner
Solid skatepark. All tranny. Enough variety to warm up my old man legs.
The larger bowl is pretty damn fun for longboarding and lots of room. On a hot Thursday afternoon at 1:30pm, a few kids were on scooters and ripping the vert but otherwise not busy at all. It's a fast and open park. If you've skated Newburg, this is similar but smaller. Have a blast, kiddies.
Went there at night and had fun with no one there sure it's crowded during the day but it's a very nice and large park but hard to fid easy ramps
