ETNIES SKATEPARK OF LAKE FOREST VOTED #1

• There is free admission every day for Lake Forest residents; others must obtain an ID card for $5. • An expanded section opened in August; it is the largest free skate park in the United States, according to the city. • The park draws 60,000 visits by skaters annually. Why they are No.1: "Some of the things that make us stand out is that we are over 60,000 square feet, which is more than (major O.C. parks Vans and Volcom) combined," skate-park coordinator Nick Gates said. "We have a variety of (elements) from world-class street, flow, bowls and pools. There is something for everybody at our park." Claim to fame: After its completion in 2003, the Etnies park quickly became the premier destination for skaters in south Orange County and has held multiple championship tournaments and events. The park features a street course larger than any other O.C. skate park and the only cradle (a half-dome-shaped concrete ramp) in Orange County. Fan favorite: "Everyone is like family. It's the best skate park, they have a cradle and their cement isn't chipped away like at other parks," — Dakota Schennum, Lake Forest Fun fact: There is 92,200 linear feet of rebar in the park. That's more than 17 miles, enough to stretch from the park to the ocean at Laguna Beach.
