Bideford’s timber Mini Ramp was built in April 2017 by Maverick following the closure of the metal skatepark on the same site in February 2017. The mini ramp was built as a temporary facility whilst the new Bidford Concrete Skatepark was being built nearby off Kingsley Road.
The original Bidford Skatepark consisted of metal ramps on a tarmac base and was set up in a back and forth arrangement. The opening side featured a flat bank and a quarter pipe next to a series of back to back mini ramps forming a spine and a volcano between the two. Next to this was a driveway with a hubba down the middle of it and an adjoining jump box. At the end of the course was a wall of flat banks and quarter pipes for the return.
