Situated in a nice spot by the river, St. Neots is a large skatelite skatepark with a lot of variation in the ramps and with a imaginative layout. It is mainly transition based but there are a few street obstacles here as well.
The park features a large back and forth run that is made up of a big flat bank with a dip next to a huge roll in that lead into the middle section which holds a roll over, riveway with hubba and a jump box lined up. The other end of this section then has a huge vert wall with a quarter pipe in the middle the back of which is shared with a massive 13ft vert half pipe.
Next to this run is two mini ramps back to back with each other forming both a spin and a volcano. One of these mini ramps is then spined with an unusual bowl that curves around these two mini ramps with two open sides and the back of which forms another spine with a fourth mini ramp.
St. Neots is a huge skatepark with a lot of line potential and the obstacles here are all quite large and well spaced out. The arrangement of the back and forth run is not the most original but the set up of the mini ramps is very unique and it would be worth a visit just for these if that is your thing.
The park’s history goes back to 1989 when the ‘old red ramp’ was installed. The ramp deteriorated and in 1994 a wooden vert ramp was built. Following further deterioration, the current skatepark and international competition-grade vert ramp were installed in 2006.
