Clackamette Skatepark

1955 Clackamette Drive


In 1998 Gladstone School District and the Cities of Milwaukie and Oregon City, in cooperation with area youth banded together to create a place where area youth could meet and skate safely. The process of designing the park through local meetings empowered area youth who ultimately assisted in initial fund raising efforts and lobbied local governments to make their dreams of reality.

By spring 1999, both Cities and the Gladstone School District had committed $2,500 to be used to design a Skatepark. On June 2, 1999 a resolution went to the Oregon City Commission supporting the development of a Skatepark and at the same meeting the Skatepark was sited at Clackamette Park in Oregon City, just across the river from Gladstone. This site will allow for easy access along Highway 99E for the area youth from Gladstone and Milwaukie. The Park will serve as a regional Skatepark.

The youth continued to support their dream with local fundraising efforts and local businesses also stepped up to assist with design efforts. AdaPT Engineering of Portland donated Geotechnical services and Compass Corporation of Milwaukie provided a survey of the area. Lee Engineering, Oregon City, developed a drainage plan for the park, which Purkiss-Rose, RSI used in their design of the Park.


 - Bicycles are now permitted to use the skatepark during an open ended trial period. We will continue to assess whether bicycles can safely coexist with skaters in the same park.
 - Slow Skate. In order to provide safe access to less experienced users, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9-11am, the skatepark will only be open to inexperienced users under the age of ten.

Nice little park to go relax but only 4 swings and no play structures make this an older kids picnic and lawn games or skate boarding place, not really a little kids place

Decent skate park with a good variety of features. However if you like skating vert, there are other skate parks in the area that have much better bowls and transition. Nevertheless, this is a fun skatepark. The multi level box is always waxed nicely and the mellow walls are great for fly-outs. The park is also very nice and has some good views, with a walking trail.

Great place to spend a quick picnic or walk the dog. really muddy grass during the winter times but there is a paved trail through the mud. walk by the river or in the trees. actual bathroom with enclosed cement walls that are maintained daily.

Moderately or semi-large features which can be great for a variety of users. Notably, the state flower, Oregon Grape grows right next to the skatepark. 4-5 foot partial quarter pipes make good for launching off of or gapping over, and a taller vertical quarter pipe is great for vert-skills (example: aerial half-turns). There is a multi-tiered box for grinds or bunny hops onto and off of, and two large unique curved rails for grinds or getting onto. #clink This park is good for riders who are comfortable with larger features, though these features are not nearly as large as other skate parks like Holly Farm Park or Gabriel Park. Great place to exercise!
