Built by Team Pain, this park is fun but the county is raping you by charging $8 to skate. (You may want to try hopping the fence early on Mondays and skate for free for a little while. Very hard to see you in the pool.)

WHAT: Three main concrete sections to this park and a pool. The first is a mini section with a 3-foot mini that's about 24-feet wide with 6-feet or so trannys. So it's tight and bowled off at one end, and opens to a couple pockets. The pool is fun to skate. Then there's the big bowl section that's a maze of trannys, pockets, hips, and an over-vert corner. It may even be a bit of overkill, but nevertheless it's fun to roll around in. The big section also has a line of obstacles going along the top that the rollerbladers love. The street section is the most skated section of the park, very well put together layout and worth checking out. The jury's still out if it's worth the $8 bucks to skate.

GOOD: It's great to have a Team Pain skatepark in the area

BAD: Fucking sucks to have to pay $8 to skate.

PADS: Mandatory helmet, and they will come after you on the chin strap

ADDRESS: 220-246 S School Ave, Sarasota, FL 34237

HOW TO FIND IT: Ask anyone in downtown Sarasota

So much potential with the funds available & space designated for an amazing park.

Team Pain is the shit!

But leave to government to take something with potential and run it into the ground.

Best advice on this park is to jump the fence and skate for free, fuck paying $8 to skate with a helmet. Best time to jump the fence is early on Mondays & possibly after the park closes @ 7pm....

Beware of the PD next door!

Owner's reply

Go towards the end of the day, like an hour or so before they close, you should be able to get in at a discounted rate.

Dustin Dollin graces the cover of the September issue, screeching a hellacious 180 nosegrind at the Hollywood Bowl. The hits keep coming inside: Matt Bennett, Jake Donnelly and Wes Kremer get grilled; Element traverses Taiwain; Vol 4 hits the road (and the spliffs) for SXSW; a 16-page photo feature blows some stoke in your eyes; EMB OG James Kelch talks Classic Graphics and Cory Kennedy talks some shit. Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
