Lincoln City


As of 3/5/06 there are four sections of the Lincoln City facility, each built in its own time. Pictured below are only three; the missing section is a simple pad west of the covered section with a grind box and two opposing 2' quarterpipes.

Review: Dreamlands most unique shape yet, this pool follows few patterns of commonly replicated designs. It has a steep 4' shallow end with two stairs in one of two pockets and an easier transistioned 8' deep end.

Lincoln City cradle

Open:  June, 2003

Review:  Dreamland's skate parks keep me up at night. The new addition to Lincoln City's skate park is timeless and so straight forward it hurts. Without a kink, ripple or even hesitation, the park's simplicity and clarity is startling. The only limits are those of the user; it is as if the park is transparent. The fluidity and challenge poured into Dreamland's latest creation ensure a healthy community facility for decades to come. It is not as easy to dive into the cradle as it looks, but it is a hay of a ride.

You'd run, too, if you saw Eric Lee grind the tombstone.
