One Fullerton firm is very busy, designing and building skate parks. Below is some of the information posted about their activities. The dates are a bit old but it will provide you with some information if you're looking for a skate park to try out. 
    The City of Bell Gardens, California’s project moved right along on a “fast track”with great support from the Community Services Department, City staff and the City Council.  The 12,000 square foot facility opened in the early 2000.  

    The City of Brea, California, has a 9,500 square foot skate park that is under construction and should be completed by summer 2000..  
    The City of Dublin, California’s skate park, while park of a new park project, opened spring 2000, to the delight of local skaters. The skate park is 13,500 square feet in size. 

    Construction of the skate park in the City of Irvine, California is well under way, with the rains causing some delays. This 8,500 square foot facility is laid out in a very nice sports park.  Completion will be by Spring 2000.  

    Long Beach, California skate park is under construction. This is a great layout of a 13,000 square foot facility with lots of public input. The project is scheduled for a summer 2000 opening.  

    The City of Lynwood, California inaugurated its skate park in early 2000 to a very large crowd at the opening day ceremonies. The skate park, while rather tight, offers 7,500 square feet and has a balance between street and transition skating.  

    The City of Palm Desert, California had its grand opening for its skate park in the fall of 1999 to a cast of hundreds. This 15,000 square footfacility is the first in the desert community.  The skate park offers great street skating with a big snake run with a bowl at each end.  

    The City of Paso Robles, California’s skate park’s construction is under way.  This is a 10,000 square foot facility with a completion date of summer 2000.  The City has a great group of skaters to work with who are eagerly waiting for the grand opening.  

    The skate project in the City of San Clemente, California is finally under way.  It includes a 12,600 square foot skate park, addition to an existing parking lot and new restroom building.  Great layout and nice size, but somewhat of a remote site.  Project is scheduled for a summer 2000 opening.  

    The City of San Ramon, California, long awaited skate park opening finally occurred in the spring of 2000.  This 13,000 square foot facility fit snuggly into an existing park site.  

    The construction of the skate park for the City of Santa Barbara, California proved to be a  challenge to get all the permits and work with the Historic Committee.  This 15,000 square foot facility, located next to the beach, will prove to be one of the greats.  Lot of input from the guys at Maple and Shorty’s.  The park is under construction with a summer 2000 opening planned.  (see link below)
