So Camarillo Skatepark is a little strange in that was once an free public facility but due to some vandalism it has become a fenced-off-pay-as-you-go skatepark. Prices are very reasonable though at $5 for a day pass (or $20 annually for locals) I guess that is just to cover the cost of some dude sitting there all day making sure everything is ok… who knows.
Once inside, the skatepark itself is a little battered and worn (there’s even some cement rot) however the setup is pretty solid starting with a decent sized end-to-end street course that features 5ft transitions and banks at one end, a central funbox with a tonne of grindable/slidable edges, some hubba’s and a couple of pyramid humps. At the other end is a series of deliciously wide stairs, a couple of banks and a long slow handrail slow. The highlight tho is the cracking 5ft bowl that rounds out the setup. Its a rather broad and open affair, but it features beautifully slow transitions and so much lip you’d think it was a teenager… boom tish! It’s pretty fun and perfect for a lazy jam, well worth the $5 entry.
There’s plenty of parking right beside the skatepark and some epic grassy parklands surrounding… even a public swimming pool. If that doesn’t seal the deal there’s also a some solid BBQ facilities.
Camarillo Skatepark is part of the Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District, so is also known as the Pleasant Valley Skatepark.
