Encino Pedlow Skatepark Description

Pedlow Skatepark Pool
The pool is wide open and has a mellow shallow end and a deep end that is 9.5' to 10' deep. There are tons of lines and working the deep end is not a problem. The coping is set perfectly and the trannys are great. The shallow has a huge roll-in where closing out the pool with a nice shallow would probably be a better idea. All in all a fun pool and will be a great pool for the locals to advance their pool skating. The pool really reminded me of an old 70's skatepark pool similar to the old Vista Skatepark keyhole and wide open like the Dog Bowl at Marina. As good as the Dog Bowl, no, but still good. If the shallow end was as good as the deep end the pool would have been killer!
Pedlow Snake (bowl) Run
The snake run is not a true snake run but is fun to go down high speed. Once you hit the bowl you can make it all the way back up it you are going fast enough. You can ride the run like a tight half-pipe. The run is all steel coping and ranges from about 1' to 5' deep with some vert sections.The old section of the skatepark features some nice looking 4' banks with rounded lips that are within the reservoir section but the cement is slow, the flow is difficult at best, and the transitions are lousy. In phase II which opened in May of 2005 they did add a nice small half-pipe section that is about 3 1/2 deep and the trannys are smooth compared to the rest of the old sections of the park

Bottom Line: If you are a pool skater it is worth going to check out the pool. I really liked it and so I leave it up to you to check it out and see if it is worthy to visit more than once.. The new skate-run is by no means a reason to travel to this park and the old section of the park is definately not something to go out of your way to skate.
