Chandler Skatepark

Chandler Skatepark opened in the spring of 2000. I remember this well, because I skated it with Mike Chapman right after it opened. We rode the heck out of it, and we had a feeling that Chandler was just a taste of what was to come. 10 years later, in the spring of 2010, I returned to Chandler to see how it holds up. Well it does. It's fun. Chandler still rips and is highly recommended.
The park is comprised of 3 sections: a big flow bowl, a mid-sized pool, and a large street course. The shallow end of the large flow bowl has a 6' tall spine and an extension. The bowl then hooks slightly right towards a raised deck 9' deep end. Metal coping finishes the bowl.
The mid-sized pool is a combi with a round 7' deep end and a square 5' deep shallow end. This pool is finished with metal coping as well. The transitions are a bit mellow, giving it a slow feeling.
Chandler's street course is it's best part. Ledges and rails drop into the street section from the entrance, leading you to the pyramid. There are bank-to-walls, pump bumps, a volcano, and a head high concrete edged corner. Chandler's street course can be skated for days because there are so many lines to find.
Chandler skate park gets a rating of 8 concrete lip grinders out of 10.

+ A decade old, and still fun!
+ Chandler has a separate bmx park so this one is skate only
- No transition on the deck of the deep end bowl extension. A complete dead end, for an otherwise complete, around-the-deck track.
? What's up with that super kinked pyramid at the upper end of the park?
