Pedlow Skate Park

One way to judge a community is by the commitment they demonstrate to their youth.  pedlow-street-bowlOne of the many reasons I am so proud to call Encino home is their outstanding achievement in this area. One very popular attraction is Pedlow Skate Park.  Located at 17334 Victory Blvd., this park is a parent’s answer to the recession. For only $1 anyone under the age of 18 can buy a month pass to use the facility. It is required that all skaters wear a helmet, knee pads and wrist pads, failure to do so will lead to a citation so make sure your kids are appropriately outfitted.

The park is open weekdays from noon to sunset and on the weekends from 10am to sunset.  Pedlow features a concrete area and handrails as well as a “funbox” and an “inland ground waterfall”.  Please don’t ask me what those are, I have no idea, but I do know kid’s eyes light up at their mention.

Pedlow Skate Park is suitable for rollerblades and skateboards.  Classes are also offered for those looking to perfect their skill level.

Encino truly has something for everyone.  I’m Carol Wolfe, nobody does it better!
