For those looking for a new place to skate, the Los Osos skatepark has something for everybody.

The park is concrete with a large open center that connects different sections; grind rails and boxes on the flats, two bowls and a pool. The”kiddie bowl” is the small bowl aimed at beginners, and the larger bowl has an over-vert extension.

The kidney shaped pool with real coping is a favorite amoung local skaters.

“There are some old school guys that come and just shred the pool,” Cody Ages, 22, of Los Osos said. Ages is a supervisor at the park and has skated for 10 years. Although most people have fun, he has seen the repucussions of skating in the park.

“In the first few weeks of being open, someone ruptured their spleen, someone broke a leg, somebody else broke their ankle,” Ages said.

Drake Stanley, 22, of Carpentaria, made a trip to Los Osos just to ride the park.

“This park has great lines and one of the only pools in the area,” Drake said.

Just off of Los Osos Valley road in Los Osos, the park is open 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends. Tickets are $2 and are not for sale at the park. They must be purchased at Wavelengths, Central Coast Surf, Los Osos Boardshop, Morro Bay Surf Co., Los Osos Fitness, Azhiaziam and Tus Amigos.

“The only downside to this park is you have to pay, everything else is perfect,” Mike Cain, 17, of Morro Bay said.
