Oceanside Skate Parks

OCEANSIDE SKATE PARK HISTORY

Skateboarding has been present in the City of Oceanside for many years. The Oceanside Skatepark system is unique and was formally established in December of 2001 with the opening of the Temporary Downtown Skatepark. The successful Downtown Skatepark has since closed but has made way for more Oceanside Skateparks. Since 2001 the Parks & Recreation Division has built four more neighborhood Skateparks at Martin Luther King Park, Melba Bishop Park, John Landes Park and Libby Lake Park expanding upon the original concept. But Oceanside hasn’t stopped there; more skateparks are coming… look forward to the Alex Road Skatepark as well as future remodeling of existing facilities at John Landes and Libby Lake Parks.

Today, skaters of all ages can enjoy a variety of challenging Skatepark courses throughout the city with multiple styles such as “street” and “tranny”. The Martin Luther King Skate Park, Melba Bishop Skate Park and the future Alex Road Skatepark were designed and built by the Seattle based company Grindline Skateparks, which was founded in 1990 by a multi-talented team of Skateboard Park Designers, Concrete Craftsmen, Construction Managers and Professional Skateboarders which are dedicated to producing the best skateparks on the planet. Grindline has designed and built skateparks all over the country and world. Oceanside is one of the few Southern Californian Cities to have not one, but two Grindline Skateparks.
