Poynton skatepark is situated in the Deva Close Palying Field and was built by Wheelscape, opening in 2009. It is an all concrete bowl of varying depth and also has a flat bank with a ledge adjoined to the side.
The bowl itself is a fairly long and thin shape and split into three main sections. The first bowl is the most shallow of the three and is rectangular in shape, the open side of which leads into the middle section. The middle section is deeper and more of a square shape and also features a vert wall along one side. The final section leads off from this part and is a much deeper figure 8 bowl aimed at the more experienced bowl riders as it is very whippy and the transitions are very tight.
Poynton bowl is a great spot for bowl skaters of all ability to come as it has something for riders of all abilities. The shallow section can be doubled up as a mini ramp to practise the basics and the deeper sections provide for some more challenging lines once you have mastered the basics.
