Yes, after a good while of construction the Los Angeles Skate Plaza is open. Not only that but it actually looks unique and pretty fun to skate. A new spot destination just got added to my little book of “must skate spots”. This plaza is absolutely awesome!
The grand opening already went down which means now it’s time for all of you out there to go and shred up the park for yourselves. The first thing you will probably notice about the plaza is the unique shape of the centerpiece; a sort of circular octagon with stairs, banks, ledges, and rails all coming out from it. There are also some awesome manual pads that drop off to flat. You can basically take turns skateboarding off each side to polish your skills on the designated obstacle.
Around the entire premises you will find various other random obstacles such as the wonderful corner bank. This thing is sweet. It’s not to steep but not to mellow either so you can go up it do a trick and transfer to the other side. You can also skate my personal favorite, which was the euro like manual pad that can also be used as a slanted ledge. There are also buttery benches and some ledges formed like stairs so you can choose the height you want to grind at.
Overall the Los Angeles Skate Plaza is awesome. There are more obstacles that I didn’t even name that are there for you to skate as well. But the best part about this plaza is the fact that you don’t need protective gear and it’s absolutely FREE to skate. Yes free of charge and you don’t have to spend money on gear? What are you waiting for make the trip out and give it a good session.
