Opened in late 2009, the South Park skatepark was built by Wheelscape and is mainly a transitions based park with some street elements. It is an all concrete park with a small brick work section and consists of a large bowl with an even larger bowled transitions section.
On the back side of South Park skatepark is the bowl made up of two main parts: the first is a wider, more open section with a slight kink in the side that then leads into a much deeper, whippier section with an over-vert. Around one side of this is a straight ledge and a curved ledge and the other side leads into the main section.
The main part of South Park skatepark is large and open with a bowled edge and an open side. Leading down from the bowl are a stair set and a flat bank with hubba that are lined with two angled brick walls and also a steep pyramid with a block at the top and a curved rail that slides nicely. This section is flat bottomed and the edges have an extension and a vert wall on one side and another pyramid with an up and down hubba on the open side.
South Park is a great skatepark and has a lot for all types of rider of all abilities. You could easily spend a day here pumping around the transitions of the bowl or the main section and hitting everything front and back side, you should definitely make the effort to get down here is you live nearby.
