If you have any interest in skateboarding what so ever, one would know of the infamous Burnside Skatepark. Located underneath the east end of the burnside bridge in Portland, Burnside has been skated for over twenty years. Burnside was originally built by the skateboard community without permission and eventually the city approved the area as a public skatepark.The park has been a staple of not only the Portland skate scene, but the whole Pacific Northwest. The skatepark is more of a land mark in Portland then anything. Even if your not a skateboarder, Burnside offers spectacular people watching and entertainment for every walk of life.
