The Dalles
The Benjamin Rockwell Memorial Skatepark
Est. 1998

The park's condition was no longer safe.

Funds were raised by locals and city alike with a final cost $28,000.

Quick directions
    From I-84 eastbound take exit #84 and go up West 2nd street (east).  The park is just east of Safeway and Ernest.  Parking is not encouraged next to the buildings, but there is a lot in Thompson Park (swimming pool in backround of above photo).
     From I-84 westbound take exit #85 and head west.  Find 2nd street and follow it until you see the skatepark or Safeway or Ernest, the park is on the east side of them.
