I've never been there, but L.A. High looks like a fun spot, the brick banks and other stuff there looks like so much fun.
I skated there once. Super fun. The only complaint I have ever heard about it is that the banks are too hard to do much on for some people. Really though, its about as tough as any sort of steep bank situation, and a lot of fun.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

I'll expand on one thing diabolik said... everything in downtown Baton Rouge from the Centro up to the Capitol (the walls being in there) is fucking amazing. Baton Rouge is one of the best cities I've ever skated in... the Centro is/was kind've like Louisiana's own EMB, Sal Barbier's got some stuff he's done there over a decade ago that's still legend shit. Also, downtown BR is always changing, and its been getting new shit to skate consistently.

Right next to the actual downtown is the Cat Banks, which has been a solid skatespot since I was cruising over the hips there before I was a teenager... now it has some new DIY concrete, ledge and flatbar stuff, so it's even better.

Our Dreamland park is my default place to skate, and I love it because that thing's there because of work some of us did with the Louisiana legislature, and because of the efforts of my best friend and a few others on a local city council level. The park has completely altered the skating here. For years there were 4-6 of us that skated together, hitting what we had, now we've got an amazing place and you can easily scrounge up a dozen or more people to go session with if they're not already there.

Another hat tip to the Brooklyn Banks... when I went a few years ago, they had an angle-iron edged box at the very top of it, and that shit was fun as all hell. The column is fucking great too... just wallying off it into the bank is fun for days.

FDR: The big over vert pocket, the big wall next to it with the burrito thing sticking out, the line up of round bowls, the big column, and even the little mini ramp over there are each classic. The concrete boobs are fun too.

New Orleans: the white jersey barrier wall right next to the ferry landing at the River Walk. It's not an epic spot or anything, it's just a little concrete wall that you can ollie over from one side, ride like a ramp from the other, and it can be treated like a rough ledge as well. Diabolik mentioned the pancakes too... never skated anything like 'em. Tons of stuff has gone down there, and they're one of the most unique places ever.

Plaza de la Marina in Malaga

So much fun shit there. Stairs in many sizes, ledges, lots of funny banks, manualpads and perfect ground.
Theres also many other cool spots in that area

If this is the bridge on Webster Avenue, then I love this spot even though the traffic can make it very sketchy. I work about 3 blocks away from it and skate it whenever I have a chance.

I really love the pool at Wilson Park. I wish I had one in my backyard (or had a backyard).

yeah that's it, it's super hard to skate with the traffic, also the big pothole infront of the runway, but it's still a blast nonethless

Webster has a nice assortment of random, janky shit to skate. I skated the dog park on Sheffield and pissed off some dog owners the other day but that thing was a lot of fun

I'm kind of a pussy but I could skate the tiny little white bank on Treasure Island for hours if my friends didn't get tired of it in 20 minutes

Montreal - but specifically,
Peace Park, which is all marble ledges, and Parc la Fontaine, which is the raddest meetup spot.  Marble benches with a slight curve and awesome flat ground, and the Art Gallery downtown which also has ledges, stairs, and manual pads of the marble variety.

The Big O is also there but I don't really skate tranny enough to love that thing expect for historical value.

so much fun
O man would you be so kind as to let me know where that is?

Also, I think I would have to say one of my favorite spots is the Indian School ditch in Albaquerque. I've tried to go to Hell's Ditch, cuz it looks super fun, but it's always fallen through. It rained cats and dogs the one time I passed through Tulsa.

denver skatepark

that park is one of my favorites. ledges, tranny, good ground, and lit up.

my favorite spot is the dwp ledges. ive gone there prob 5 times and each time i got kicked out even before i got onto the walkway. i finally got to skate it for an hour about a month ago and it was all that it was cracked up to be.

there's a new plaza in east la that is near perfect, just no lights.

i really liked flushing meadows, even though there's not too much to it. maybe it was just being there.

one place i want to go to before i die is macba and universitat.

The 6 stair with the hubba is a fun spot. Its The University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth. The whole campus is sick to skate except for that 85% of the place has the worst ground ever. I cringe every time I see Justin Brock fall on that front board on that long rail because the ground is basically pebbles stuck in cement. If you ride bigger wheels and push hard your fine, but if you fall your pretty much going to rip your clothes and bleed.

Another fun spot, and my personal favorite is called Metal Grind. Its a pier where fishing boats dock up and there's a metal edged ledge that runs down the length of the pier. Its a perfect ledge except that if you fuck up a trick, your boards going in the drink. Only about 30 feet of it doesn't have water on the other side, which is fine.
