FEATURED THIS WEEK
Exciting New Ramp at Escondido Skate Park
The Escondido Skate Park, located in Kit Carson Park, recently renovated an existing skate ramp and installed a new and improved jump box feature. Staff worked with former professional skateboarder and skate park designer, Kanten Russell to discuss recommendations on the redesign. The new feature offers a new experience for our users and improves the flow of the skate park. It has already become the favorite ramp for riders of all wheel action sports, and adds a new dynamic for competitions and events.
