Hidden amongst the trees in Curwen Park is Workington skatepark, a mainly transitions focused park made up of concrete obstacles with some street elements thrown into the mix.
On the back side there is a mini ramp with a perpendicular quarter pipe coming off one of the platforms. This is the end part of a back and forth run which is comprised of a funbox with a hubba and starts with a series of flat banks with rails and ledges. On the opposite side to these is a corner block with two perpendicular flat banks and a line of rails leading off one of them.
This a great local park with some obstacles that are not too challenging making it perfect for beginners to learn the basics. There are some nice lines here but the arrangement is very back and forth based.
