Overall:  8 out of 10

Special:  Redmond has a bowl with pool coping, a street area, a round steel coped L bowl with a "widow's peak" and a full on snake run, the only one in Oregon.
It is important to note what is not in the park.   See the patch of gravel on the north end of the T bowl.  It is left unpaved on purpose.  It is a barrier that prevents unintentional entry into the T bowl (for example a rider screaming down the snake run, losing control and pitching himself head long into the deep end).  This purposeful design illustrates the exceptional skill of Dreamland.
