Portland is renowned for its system of skate parks. The 11,500-sq.-foot facility in North Portland’s Pier Park was the first in a planned 19-park system that covers every region of the city. Since it opened in 2006, four other parks have been built.

Perrie and I stopped by for a look-see last Sunday afternoon.
