Poway is a more isolated skatepark, which leads to a chill vibe for beginners to practice and build confidence before hitting the busier parks. The park is known for being a good place to practice your flow and transitions. It is also located next to a police station, which keeps the criminal hijinks to a minimum. While the skatepark is unsupervised, all safety gear is required.
