A public park containing a small manual pad funding by local grants and volunteer labor. Also known as the "S Ledges," the spot was a popular place to skate until the City installed anti-skateboarding cleats and signs. Local advocates worked with the City and received permission to remove the cleats and take down the signs. This event was captured in the documentary, Freedom of Space.
WHAT: Curving ledges and 5x10x1 manual pad.
GOOD: Great location! On the water with views of Mount Rainier in the background. Great photo opportunity.
BAD: The existing slab is rough and tears through decks.
PADS: No pads required.
ADDRESS: 400 Dock St Tacoma, WA 98402
HOW TO FIND IT: Poke your way into downtown Tacoma. Go north on Portland Avenue—the lowest main drag running through town—until you get out of the business district. Take a right at the first light to go over a curving bridge. At the bottom of the curve is the entrance to Thea's Park.
