Get This: Potrero Del Sol is a Park, Not Just a Skatepark


And it’s a nice one too! Hilly, green, wooded, with views of Sutro Tower and the freeway and skaters skating in the skatepark, a playground full of lots of interesting gadgets, and a bandstand from which Thee Oh Sees can totally rock my world.

Dolores has a cute little competitor.

(Also, I realize this is not necessarily news, but everyone I talked to was like, “Have you been here before? I haven’t, this is great!” So I’m sure it’s news to plenty.)

  1. you should keep the mission hipsters in dolores park. it would suck for them to ruin our skate park. they litter alot and play shitty music and the hipster girlfolk are nothing to look at really.

    if we will stay out of your hipster heaven and then will you please stay the fuck out of our skate park?

    otherwise i feel i might need to start hurting hipsters in many different physical ways and finish letting the air out of their tires on their bikes and selling them for cheap to the homeless that live under the 101 highway.

    thank you.

    Yeah, because the chicks hanging out in skate parks are all Brazilian super models that have crushes on broke, baggy pants wearing, pubescent, skate rats, still living with their parents in the E. bay, whose sole transportation device is a board with wheels bolted to it…

    The wheels are bolted to the trucks which are bolted to the board so your entire spaz is moot.

    Hey Billy Apple Bottom: Why can’t we all just get along? Don’t be such a hater! The park is a public area. Learn to share.

    They played a few gigs up in northern California, then just dissapeared
