Sunken Gardens Skatepark (Livermore Skatepark)


Sunken Gardens Skatepark, better known as Livermore skatepark can seem small to experienced skateboarders and bikers. But when the park is empty, it is plenty of fun.

Some of the skatepark’s main features include a small half capsule that flows into deep, tight bowls, good coping, ledges, flat bars, and a pyramid. There are also a few fun hips to ollie on or gap.

Livermore skatepark is a pretty smooth surface to ride and can seem a bit too slick for some skaters’ likes. Keep in mind to wear full pads and helmets while there as the security is known to issue tickets quite frequently.
