Sonicwave Skateboard Park was a concrete skatepark in Albany, NY. It opened in the late spring of 1979 and closed for good in December of 1980. Designed by Curtis Hesselgrave, the park was a unique indoor/outdoor facility, with six runs in total. The indoor park (which could be skated year-round) had four runs: a 6-foot deep square reservoir, a 4-5 foot deep, 60-foot long “trench run”, a smaller 8-9 foot deep kidney pool, and a 10-11 foot deep teardrop (or “bidet”) shaped pool that was the highlight of Sonicwave and one of the best bowls east of the Mississippi! Outdoors, the park featured a giant banked freestyle area and a larger 12-foot deep kidney pool.
