This is the site of one of the most famous big vert ramps in the history of skateboarding. 80' wide by 13 ft tall, 19 ft roll-in, extensions and "floating platform" - big, big, big! It's been in a zillion ads. But the best part about this park- at least for most of us - is everything else.

It's a big park that houses the capital's only vert ramp. There's something for everyone here, and beginners can benefit from the sturday morning instruction sessions.
