Desert Oasis: Victorville Skatepark Opens at Doris Davies Park

It’s not a mirage, after two decades of contemplation, the Victorville Skatepark is officially open. The 15,000 square foot skatepark blends into the site’s challenging topography via a series of flowing elevation changes, a variety of street elements, and an 8’ deep bowl with Tedder Stone pool coping. Often overlooked site amenities like lights and spectator seating were an important part of our skatepark design process and help elevate Victorville’s skatepark to the level of roadtrip-worthy destination.

Located at the north end of Victorville’s Doris Davies Park, the skatepark had a soft opening in October when the public was unofficially given the City’s blessing to begin using the facility. The skatepark’s official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony has been put on pause due to COVID-19, but will hopefully happen in the near future.

Since October, the skatepark’s been packed daily and receiving rave reviews from skateboarders and wheel sports athletes of all backgrounds. Included in those large crowds were our good friends from Powell Peralta who visited the skatepark in late December.
