Native Skateparks just built a new park in Bristow, Oklahoma. It’s called Pirate Action Sports Park, which is pretty corny, but Bristow High School’s teams are the Pirates, so it’s apt.

At the time of our visit, the park was less than a month old. There is one set of bleachers and a few benches to sit on, otherwise it’s pretty barren.

I don’t have much to type about this. The park is fun, and it’s easy to find a line and keep your speed, as it’s pretty basic. It’s free, no lights that I saw, and no helmet police. But that all could change, i’m sure.

I also don’t care enough to edit the clip to music, so here it is. Enjoy.

Founded in the early 1800’s, Muskogee lies 140 miles west of Oklahoma City. Famously referred to in Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee”, it is now home to Midland Valley Skate Park, created by Native Skateparks. Sitting at just over 9,000 square feet, the park opened a few months ago and is located in Robison Park, a large city park including basketball courts, a soccer field, and a playground.

All the coping and metal surfaces are bright blue and it looks great. surrounded by transition on all sides it is fun to skate and easy to find lines. Strategically-placed pump humps keep you going, and there’s a bowl with over a foot of vert.

The Saturday that we went, the park was crowded with kids and lots of spectators. It had rained the previous night and the park is situated on top of a small hill. There is not much deck surface around the edges of the park so avoiding soggy turf meant every single person was basically in the park. With kids sitting on all the quarters as if they were benches, this left a lot of areas basically unskateable. I’m sure we could’ve asked everyone to move but hey, live and let live.

The Facts

Cost: Free

Lights: No

Restrooms: port-a-potties

Variety of terrain: lots of tranny, very few “street” fixtures

Shade status: trees in the area though nothing directly at the park

Nearby food and drink: standard small town fast food, 1-2 miles away

Worth going out of your way?: sure why not?

Apart from that, the park is excellent. It’s well thought out and clear that flowing and lines were an important factor in the design. All the transitions are beautiful and there’s a few small street obstacles in the center. One end of the park leads into a replica shallow end with stairs and pool block.

The bowl is also killer, it’s 8′ and 10′ with a 6′ pocket. The 10′ has 1′ of vert and is pretty intimidating to me, but Ryan Crane from Native Skateparks was there, and he was ripping it. Also worth mentioning that Ryan is the one who designed the bowl and did the construction drawings.

Native Skateparks definitely knows what they’re doing and I can only hope that OKC’s Parks and Rec. dep’t will enlist them for future projects in the Metro area.

In addition to the video I made for the site, I also found this one from Jono Sinclair and Quickiemart Tulsa:

Jono did a great job on this video, I like it more than my own!

Obviously the greatest spot to hit Norman since the Energy Center double-set, Erik Deringer christened this baby-bank-to-curb while we were cruising through Norman a few months ago.

I can only imagine that by now the spot, no doubt wax-blackened, has seen a whole world of insane NBD’s as I heard that some of the greatest pro teams travelled here to session this spot. Expect video footage of Daewon, Haslam, Jerry Hsu, and all the great bank-to-curb’ers to pop up in their respective companies future video projects. I’ve even heard rumors of Bobby Puleo stopping through to check it out.

Wait. Actually, none of that is true. But there IS a tiny bank-to-curb in Norman, and Erik and I did skate there once.

My long-time friend Brandon Sowards informed me of a new skatepark in Noble this week, so obviously we had to check it out. Brandon agreed to meet me there so I hollered at a few friends on short notice and we began our adventure.

Noble is 6 miles southeast of Norman, and about an hour from OKC depending on how fast you drive. The skatepark is located in Dane Park which also hosts a small “splash pad.” Dane Park itself is fairly new, based on the info I could find online it’s less than a year old.

Officially called Noble Skate Trail by whoever is official around those parts, it’s essentially two long sidewalks or “trails” with a slight downward slope. There are various obstacles along each trail and they are connected at the far end of the park by a long curved quarter. While slightly different than your average skatepark, I’m all for ANY type of skatepark in Oklahoma.

The street obstacles consist of a few grind rails, all flat and fairly wide. There are handrails down a 3 stair and a 6 stair, and there are two boxes of differing heights. Add an insane shoulder-high pole jam, a rainbow grinder, and a curved 3-ft quarter with square coping that goes to vert, and you’ve got the Noble Skate Trails.

It’s a pretty fun place to skate. The metal grinds really good, the layout pushes you to put lines together, and the quarter pipe is tough. Considering it’s 3 or 4 feet tall and basically goes to vert, it’s very challenging and can take a bit to get it dialed.

The trails themselves are a little too narrow, and they put the obstacles in the center of the path, which leads to some awkward maneuvering. It would have been much better to have obstacles on the sides of the path, but whatever. All in all it’s pretty fun.

Will I visit this park often? No.

Would I skate here everyday if it was by my house. Yes.

Go check it out and make sure you take a broom. It’s duck shit season.

There’s not a whole lot of information online about this one. Even Native Skateparks’ own website doesn’t say much about it. Looks like they built the place though, and it’s pretty nice!

The Facts

Cost: Free

Lights: No

Restrooms: Bushes?

Variety of terrain: mostly tranny, small rail across and down bank, pool coping in parts

Shade status: the nearest tree should suffice

Nearby food and drink: nope, all that stuff is back in town

Worth going out of your way?: sure why not?

Definitely a tranny-heavy park, you can cruise around without pushing pretty easily. There’s some pool coping, a tall steep bank, a nice long red curb atop a smaller bank, and a “hand-crafted bull nose” whatever that means. I don’t know all the salty-tranny-dog terminology, but the bull nose is nice indeed.

This park is in the middle of nowhere so the atmosphere is chill. Lots of trees and grass and a small pond nearby also.

Not much in the way of facilities, so bring your own supplies and piss behind a tree. No lights from what I could tell either.

We hit up this park after going to the Poteau park and swimming at the lake, so the energy level was low. Got a couple clips though, and you should be able to get a good idea of what the park is like.

Looking back on the parks we’ve visited, and comparing it to the amount of concrete parks that were here when I was a teenager 20 years ago, I’m very happy with the state of skateparks in Oklahoma. I only wish they were in closer proximity to myself. But I understand there are other people in Oklahoma that skateboard too.

Skatepark off Broadway
August 302014
 Date of Visit: August 2, 2014

Crew: Bibb, T-Bird, Mitch, Ely, Isaac, Jimmy, Horn

 

Chalk up another win for Native Skateparks, this time in Poteau, OK. Poteau is about as far east as you can go without entering Arkansas, and surprisingly there’s two good parks within 20 miles of each other, the second being Heavener. Due to their proximity I wanted hit up both on the same day. Obviously the right way to do this was to turn it into a camping trip. Camp was set up at Lake Wister, on the tip of “Quarry Island.” We camped Friday night, skated Saturday, camped Saturday night, and drove back Sunday.

Let’s get on to the point of the story, the Poteau park. Native wrote it up nicely, so we’ll just go with that:

The skatepark off Broadway in Poteau, OK is approx. 11,000 square foot skatepark was designed to host a super fun and fast intermediate style bowl and offers some distinctive street features that should allow for some technical options while still having a good overall flow. This park is designed and built by Native Skateparks and was a 2011 grant recipiant from the great folks at the Tony Hawk Foundation.  Our Crew worked through record heat to bring this little gem to south eastern Oklahoma in 65 days.

Their words are truth, the park has lots of variety packed into it’s compact design. The long mellow quarter and bank-to-curb are my favorites, the flat bar is perfect, and every edge is metal. You can easily get creative and gap to grind anywhere. I say this about a lot of parks, but if it was in my neighborhood my life would be complete.

It can’t all be positive, so on the negative side of things, there is no shade nearby and I didn’t see a drinking fountain. Oklahoma gets hot in the summer, and it was 90-100 degrees while we were there. While planning for any outdoor concrete park, enough budget should be set aside for at least a small covered area. The lack of shade actually caused us to leave the park earlier than we wanted to. It was just too hot. Also, the “handrail” is pretty small, so if you’re looking to become the next Jimmy Thomas you may be disappointed. Learn back D’s on the extension instead.

Aside from the previous paragraph, the park is bad-ass. I wish I could go there every day. I hope more kids in the surrounding area take up skateboarding and enjoy Native’s creation. You can read more and view pics of the park here.

Known to everyone except city officials as “DTP” this is the biggest park Oklahoma City has to offer currently.

Working on a video that covers the entire park, this one is here for now as a placeholder.

Wanted to do a “Welcome to Summer” clip, so this is a session from August of 2013 at DTP. It was easily between 90-100 that day.

Hope you enjoy, and have a great summer!

This building was vacant until recently. Painted brown now, it looks to be inhabited. Bust factor unknown.

Pretty fun, good slick blacktop, low slappy curbs, plenty of shade. Excellent place to warm up and skate flat ground.

This was one of the first public parks in the Greater OKCMetro Area. I don’t remember exactly when it was built, maybe around 2000?

I’m grateful for all public skateparks, especially all public skateparks in Oklahoma, but this park is not very good. It’s about half a notch up from the plastic port-a-parks you see all over now. And I only say that because the ramps are metal. The layout is very basic and it has decent flow but the ramps are much too close together and the concrete pad the park is on is much too small. You should never have to run through grass and jump on your board to get speed for an obstacle.

On a positive note the mini-ramp is fun, 4ft on the low side and 7 on the high? Also, there is a small fun-box/manny-pad combo thing that was added as an expansion a few years after the park originally opened. That box is fun, but again not nearly enough run up to use it to it’s full potential.

There’s 2 reasons i wanted to cover this skatepark for the site:

  1. It was one of the first public skateparks in Oklahoma:
    This park has some historical and sentimental value to Oklahoma skateboarders who were around when it was first built.
  2. Erik Deringer, one of my favorite skateboarders, grew up skating here:
    Without kissing too much butt, Erik is one of the most talented skaters I’ve ever hung out with. I like to think that growing up skating this park with cramped obstacles and short run-up to everything has molded his skating for the better. Erik has quick feet and can often do 3 tricks in the amount of space most others can do 1. If that makes any sense.

So there you have it. Erik is currently living in San Jose, and last time he visited home (Norman) I asked him if he would be interested in skating the park again for the site. So that’s what we did, hooked up a decent crew and spent a couple hours there. The video here is from that day.

The City of Norman has a webpage for the park, including the park’s rules here.

10Penn
December 142013

10Penn is an old building foundation that has been converted into a skatespot. This real estate and the Convenience Store Supply next door are owned by the same person. The owner has given permission to a select few of us to build obstacles to skate here, with certain limitations.

In it’s current form, there is a 12-foot cinder-block ledge, a flat bar to drop off, a double-sided cinder-block ledge to drop off, and a couple of small circular humps placed close together.

Fun place to skate, but there’s always rocks. Bring a broom.  50 yards away there is a convenience store and a taco truck. Lots of foot traffic, mostly from homeless, local residents, and patients of a rehab clinic down the street.

This is definitely not a good place for unsupervised children to skate due to the proximity to a major street and the amount of foot traffic from locals.

There are plans for more obstacles, including transition, flat-bars, and more.

If you have any great photos or video of 10Penn and would like to submit, visit the Contact page and hit me up!

 Date of Visit: June, 2013

Crew: Bibbster, T-Bird, Rob, Mitch, JG

This one’s gonna be short and sweet. Industrial is an indoor park located in Norman. It’s layout changes somewhat regularly and they have a pretty decent shop with a wide selection of boards. What’s more, they have a lot of the cooler random accessories like Thrasher key templates, Independent pool-replica ashtrays, Toy Machine socks, and so on. I’m a sucker for that type of stuff, and they’ve got lots of it.

We hit up the park randomly one Saturday when it started raining. Had I been more prepared or motivated this listing would include photos, a longer write-up, hell maybe even an interview by Jeff or Jenny. But I wasn’t. So it doesn’t.

Please visit this park and pay them to skate there. Or if you don’t want to pay them to skate there, at least buy some of your gear there. If we aren’t careful there will be no more independently owned skateparks/shops left. Trust me, I worked for mall shops for a loooong time, and they are good at what they do. So don’t give them any extra ammo.

Mathis Brothers Skatepark
June 242013
 Date of Visit: June, 2013

Crew: Bibbster, T-Bird, Rob, Mitch, Ely, JG

Mathis Brothers Skatepark. Mitch Park. Edmond Park. Call it what you will, the Mathis Brothers skatepark, located in Mitch Park in Edmond, Oklahoma is the Metro area’s oldest cement skatepark.

Rules

The park was built in late 2001/early 2002 and was built by Brawner Construction Co., a company who previously had never built a skatepark. While that was a concern at the time the park turned out great and remains in my opinion the best park in the Metro.

Edmond is technically it’s own city but is basically a suburb of Oklahoma City so you could lump Mathis Brothers park into the group of OKC parks. It is located about 15 miles north of Oklahoma City on the outer edge of Mitch Park, near Cheyenne Middle School. The park is around 17,000 sq ft and features a full street course and a large bowl system. The street course has a box, two pyramids, a ski-jump type thing (Caswell Berry epically ollied from the bank into the quarter many years ago, one of the best things I’ve ever seen there in person), a few different size hips and a long quarter pipe running the length of the park on the north end. The east side of the park hosts the bowls which are great for beginner and intermediate cruising due to the large flat-bottoms. There is a spine between the 5 foot and 7 foot bowl and the deep bowl is around 8-9 feet and nearly vert. Around the top of the bowls are 2 flat bars, a curved ledge and a nice flat-ground peninsula-type area, perfect for games of S.K.A.T.E or just generally dorking around.

Park View

A few reasons this park is the best one in the Metro:

  • Flow. This park has a wonderful flow, you can skate the whole place for as long as your legs will permit.
  • The atmosphere. The park is surrounded by grass and trees, with a jogging trail running by it. The only fencing that is there is presumably to keep spectators from falling into the bowls, but it is minimal and not too distracting.
  • The lights. The park is lit up well at night. While they used to be on until 11 p.m. they recently started turning the lights out at 9 due to too many cases of mongoloid high-school dude-bros and gangster wanna-be’s hanging out and engaging in everything BUT skateboarding.
  • Seniority. As I said, the park has been around the longest so we’ve been skating it the longest. Something about just makes it more fun.

Fence

You generally won’t find too much sketchy stuff going down here, although some of the locals are pretty goofy. Maybe it’s something in the Edmond water. As far as amenities, there is a Walgreens and an Uptown Grocery across from the entrance to the park, the latter has an expansive deli and hot food bar with lots of delicious goods.

If you’re ever in Oklahoma City or Edmond, you should certainly skate this park. Great flow, relaxing atmosphere, and plenty of grass and trees make for a good time.

Owasso Skatepark
June 152013
 Date of Visit: June 8, 2013

Crew: Bibbster, T-Bird, Rob, Mitch, Ely, JG, Flave, Drewski

Owasso is a small city northeast of Tulsa that has a total area of 10 square miles and a population of around 28,000. Despite the small size and light population, Owasso is home to a great skatepark.

The Owasso skatepark was originally a 7,000 sq ft. pre-fab park built in 2003 and was hardly a destination.

In 2012 Owasso decided to take a different direction with their park and give it a major facelift. Instead of adding more pre-fab junk they decided to work with Native Skateparks and transform the facility to an all-concrete, 27,000 sq. ft. park with a wide variety of obstacles. It was a $200,000 project and from what I can tell it was well worth it.

The park has a nice variety of street obstacles, handrails, hubbas, boxes and a wedge gap. There is a fun, crooked, quarter-pipe pyramid thing and a tall, long, flat bar as well. Plenty of flat ground means lots of pushing so be prepared. Some really fun transition obstacles were built on the north and east sides of the original slab with a mini snake run and a couple small ski-jump type obstacles. There is a large mellow bowl that is around 4 feet deep with a nice hip and on the southeast corner of the park a deeper bowl with a round side and a square side. (Pardon my lack of proper bowl terms, salty dogs.)

It’s location lends to a nice quiet atmosphere without annoying cars, trains, random citizens, sirens, etc. There is a small building at the south end of the park that has a water fountain and I believe there are restrooms but I honestly didn’t check.

I don’t have too much else to say about this park other than it is fun and definitely worth a trip. Owasso is close enough to Tulsa, Broken Arrow, and Sand Springs to make this whole area a good destination for Oklahoma skateboarding. If you’re ambitious you can hit 5 parks in one day.

We covered Sand Springs the same day before we came to Owasso so everyone was a little spent. We definitely could have  gotten more coverage but hopefully the footage will give you a good idea of what’s possible here. Check it out and enjoy!

Didn't get a picture of the "Rules" sign, so this'll have to do.

Didn’t get a picture of the “Rules” sign, so this’ll have to do.

Sand Springs is a small town just West of Tulsa. Behind the Case Community Center sits a skatepark built by Native Skateparks. The cool thing about this park is that is was built over an existing drainage ditch, and the surrounding geography was altered minimally because of this.

“Sand Springs skatepark was designed specifically to fit within an existing storm water detention area and remain functional as a trickle channel. This design was a smart solution to this sites limitations and serves as a dual pupose to the city.” – NativeSkateparks.com

The park is around 7,000 square feet and features a large center area with banks, quarters, bumps, and humps. Up on the deck area of each side are some smaller obstacles, a couple of ledges, a flat bar, some small quarterpipes and a pretty-decent 6 stair hubba.

I find the park to be fun enough to hold my interest and also pretty challenging in some areas. The banks on either side are nice and steep and can provide enough speed to do most anything you want to. The quarter-pipes are well built and there’s a couple opportunities for transfers. Up top on the East side is the hubba ledge, a small rainbow rail you can grind over and a small tight quarter. On the West side is a long low ledge, a flat bar that’s peaked in the center and some tight trannies at each corner. While you can flow around somewhat decently, you’re kind of limited to two different paces: one for the top, deck areas and one for the middle part of the park.

The landscaping is nicely done and at the north end of the park some stones have been set up as kind of a seating area. It’s set far enough away from the road that it’s nice and quiet and there is a park trail that leads to other areas of the park. The only shade nearby is a large old tree but this should provide some decent coverage during most parts of the day.

Overall the design is fun and visually appealing and apparently the Oklahoma Recreation and Parks Society thought so too as Sand Springs received their Award of Excellence for New Recreational Facilities in 2011.

I would definitely recommend hopping off the highway to skate this park at least once. This part of Oklahoma is a great destination for skateparks as Tulsa, Sand Springs, Owasso, and Broken Arrow all have parks in the area. We will be covering all of them so stay tuned!

Route 66 Skate Park, El Reno
May 262013
 Date of Visit: May 18, 2013

Crew: Bibbster, T-Bird, Rob, Ely, Mitch, JG

El Reno’s Route 66 Skatepark opened in Summer of 2011. It has a decent flow to it though there isn’t much runway for some of the obstacles. The lack of shade can be tough to deal with in the summer months, but the absence of fencing around the park is awesome. In my opinion, a skatepark should never be fenced in. A fence kills any chance of the park blending in naturally with the surroundings and can also hinder your skateboarding as it limits movement.

The park has a good variety of obstacles and terrain packed into a compact area and the red brick centerpiece is both fun to skate and visually appealing. It’s location in a smaller town means it’s rarely crowded, and you will have to drive a couple miles to find a convenience store/refreshments.

Overall it’s a decent park and some fun can be had there. Definitely worth the trip if it’s not too far out of your way. If I lived near the park I’d be there often.

South Lakes Park, Oklahoma City
May 32013
Date of Visit:May 25, 2013

Crew:Bibbster, T-Bird, Rob, Ely, Drew, Conrad

The South Lakes skatepark is located inside the 158-acre South Lakes Park on the south side of Oklahoma City. The park itself was opened in 2004 and the skatepark opened in 2012. South Lakes is considered more of a “skate plaza” in the fact that it lacks any real transition and is comprised only of ledges, rails, stairs, and small, banked transitions.

The center of the park consists of a flat area with a weird centerpiece. The best way to describe it would be a diagonally-banked manual pad I guess. From the center you can drop down to the outer section of the park which flows around the centerpiece in a square shape.

Obstacles here are generally pretty low with the exception of a couple of rails and taller ledges that act as planters. Strangely enough there is no flat bar anywhere in the park. The parks small size also limits your speed somewhat, but once you get used to a certain pace you can cruise around the park nicely without having to jump off your board.

Highlights include the mellow 4-stair rail and the 3-stair flat ledge on the West end of the park. The ledge starts about a foot high, is 4 feet long, and drops off to a 2-foot height.

The nearest food/drinks I’ve been able to find is a Sonic Drive-In, 2 miles east off SW 119th on May, though I haven’t explored the area fully.

Overall this is a decent park, some fun can be had especially dorking around on the smaller obstacles. Speed demons and vert dogs will probably want to visit OKC’s Mat Hoffman or Edmond’s Mitch park instead.

Lights: No

Restrooms: not sure

Cost: Free

Variety of terrain: ledges, rails, small banks

Shade status: 2 covered picnic table areas
