Title: Yet again Portland doing it right!

This park opened yesterday at 3! If you're in good 'ol Oregon check it out and give 'em some love!
I'll be down there on the 5th to check it out, and take some more pics. But for the mean time go here...

Nice!  It's not too often that you can use "indoor" and "concrete" in the same sentence.

I know indoor concrete happens pretty much never! Looks super fun.

I haven't seen a review about this place yet so here it comes...

If you are in the PDX area and it's raining it's worth checking out at least once. The fee is pretty ridiculous considering the space available to skate. Super tiny indoor warehouse, that costs $9 for 2 hours. Granted they are on one of the most expensive blocks in town, but $9? Come on... Also if there is more than 3 people skating, it gets really annoying, too cramped.

The owners of this place are very cool people who took the liberty to open up an indoor skate spot after the department shut down. In one of the rainiest cities in the Country, it doesn't make too much sense as why we don't have more of them, or at least some covered parks!

It's the thought that counts... They did what nobody else was, so I respect them greatly for that. I would like to see it make it past the summer, but once we get good weather, there's no point to being inside.
