Chesterfield skatepark was built by Freestyle and opened in 2009. It is a large all concrete skatepark with a combination of street and transition elements.
On one side is a rectangular open sided bowl that doubles as a mini ramp and the open sides of which are bowled to give riders something to pump over as they enter the remainder of the skatepark. This leads into a large, open flat bottomed area surrounded by a curved flat bank. On the opposite side to the bowl there is a flat bank with two hubba leading up with a rail between the two and next to this is a pump bump on the lead up to a large taco.
This is a great local park and probably one of the better ones in the area. The surfaces are smooth and the layout is fairly original meaning that there are a lot of lines to hit here. There is something for riders of all styles and abilities and you can easily spend an afternoon with friends learning the lines.
