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.
Larger skate park with larger features. Great for cruising around "old-school" style, but also large enough for some seriously epic air if you are willing to jump high enough. This park is good for intermediate and advanced riders, beginners can ride here too, but might have a better time at a park with smaller features such as Tualatin or Wilsonville.
Very well done park and really fun
Solid skatepark. All tranny. Enough variety to warm up my old man legs.
Intense skate park, definitely made for expert park skaters
It's a pretty okay skatepark a little big if your a beginner
