Long before skateparks or X Games, Santa Monica was home to a cultural revolution.   Recognized as the birthplace of modern skateboarding, it was in the Dogtown area of Santa Monica where a group of surfers transformed skating from sidewalk surfing into the extreme sport it is today.

 The Cove, located in the heart of Santa Monica at 14th Street & Olympic Blvd, is a state of the art, 20,000-sq ft concrete facility complete with ramps, bowls, stairs, a pool with tile coping, an over-vert bowl and the Douglas Park rail - made famous through appearances in many skateboarding videos throughout the 1990s. BMX bikers and in-line skaters are also welcome to use the park (check the schedule for designated hours).

 Everyone entering The Cove is required to wear protective gear and complete a registration form and waiver annually. Spectators are welcome to watch from outside the fence.

 The Cove is accessible by Big Blue Bus lines 5 and 11.
