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.
