USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
THIS FACILITY IS UNSUPERVISED

A no-fee, 26,000-square-foot, concrete multi-use (bikes, boards, blades) facility. Site Design Group, a leader in skate park design, created a facility that will provide challenges for skaters and bikers of various skill levels. The perfect balance of bowls, banks, transitions and street components make the design fun and wide open for both bikes and boards.

From the basic Ollie or Bunnyhop to perfecting the 9-foot bowl, there is no doubt the X-Court will be an exciting place for all of us to meet new friends and perfect our sport. This type of facility requires extra care and attention in its construction and California Skateparks, Inc., a well-known skate and BMX park construction company, took care of those special needs.

X-Court Rules:

  • If you participate, you accept the risk for injury. X-court is an abbreviation for Extreme Sport Court. This is a multi-use facility for skateboards, in-line skates and BMX bicycles ONLY. No motorized vehicles.
  • SKATE AND BIKE WITHIN YOUR ABILITIES. KNOW YOUR SKILL LEVEL. Know all the rules before participating. Skating and riding under the best conditions is a high-risk activity – MAKE GOOD CHOICES AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY AS WELL AS THE SAFETY OF OTHERS.
  • All participants are strongly encouraged to wear proper attire and safety gear, including closed-toed shoes, shirts, helmets, pads and wrist supports.
  • Do not proceed into any area until clear of other skaters or bikers. Keep the riding area clean. Do not use this facility when the surface is wet or during poor weather conditions such as lightning or high winds. Portable obstacles or materials (ramps, jumps, rails, etc.) may not be used. Keep food, drinks, and other breakable objects outside of x-court. Please help keep the facility clean by using the trash receptacles. No glass containers in the park or x-court.
  • Children ages 12 and under should be supervised by an adult. Spectators must remain outside the x-court.
  • All bikes must have rubber handle bar grips and covers/protectors on pegs.
  • Respect other park users and refrain from using amplified sound and abusive language or gestures.
  • Pets, weapons, firearms, alcohol, drugs, or use of tobacco products of any kind are prohibited.
