Spot or Not: Baldwin Park Gap
By Bryan Soderlind
The Baldwin Park Gap is a tiny little gap located in the heart of suburbia, Baldwin Park in Orlando, FL. The spot doesn’t have a great start-up and isn’t much of a drop since it is usually only around two or three feet. But it could be a good spot for learning new tricks down stuff.
Grubb found this spot a few years back and took BT and I there for an afternoon weekday session. I didn’t have a camera at the time but I was able to borrow a friends HiLux panorama camera and was able to take a few shots.
Since the police seemed to have this area pretty dialed, getting busted is definitely an option. As you can see in the pictures, on our session there we had to chill out for a little while and not look suspicious while a cop parked and tried to get a figure on what we were up to. The best time to go here is when it hasn’t been raining too much and probably in the middle of the day on a weekday. I haven’t been to winching at this spot in a long time but I have ridden by it and seems to be hittable all year.
