Burnside Skatepark

Burnside Skatepark

Burnside Skatepark is a skatepark located in Portland, Oregon, United States. Located under the east end of the Burnside Bridge, the skatepark was originally built by the skateboard community without permission and eventually the city approved the area as a public skatepark.[1]

The skatepark has been featured in videogames such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Grind Session, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3.[2] Burnside Skatepark was also featured in the 1993 film Free Willy and the 2007 film Paranoid Park, as a setting for the eponymous skate park.
