Long Eaton skatepark was built by Freestyle and opened in 2012. It is a large all concrete park found in West Park and features something for everyone whether you are a transitions or street based rider.
On the far side is a wide concrete mini ramp with a small extension at one end and facing driveway. The back side of the mini ramp is joined to another long quarter pipe forming a spine that is next to this driveway and they both lead out into the main body of the park. Following these is a flat bank leading up to a street plaza section with ledges, manny pads, rails and hubbas. The other side of which leads into a large flat open area with a bowled edge with extension and a taco on the opposite side.
Long Eaton is a really nice skatepark with an original and creative layout. There are a lot of lines you can hit here with a lot of pumping opportunity meaning if you choose the right ones you won’t even have to push. You could easily spend a day here hitting all the lines and the obstacles are not too challenging if you are a beginner trying to learn the basics as well.
