Built by Freestyle and opened in late 2011, Central Park skatepark is Plymouths biggest outdoor skatepark and is all super smooth concrete and holds a large street section and also a transition section.
The street section takes the form of a multi level plaza and starting from the top opens with a platform with a flat bank leading down to the next section. Along side this bank is a stair set and down the middle of it is a hubba and rail. The next section features a upwards curved ledge and another stair set, two hubbas and a rail. These lead into the bottom platform which is slightly more transition focused. Along the side of these platforms is a raised area with a rail and a ledge that leads onto a staggered three ledge set leading down to the bottom area.
The transition section here is fairly basic and open. It features a large open area with bowled corners with a pump bump in the middle and a long bowled edge that leads around and has an extension to gain some air.
There are plans to include two extra bowls adjacent to the existing area but that will be further down the line.
This is a great park and situated in a nice central location, definitely worth a trip for a full day of skating. Even though the obstacles aren’t the most original there it a lot of space between them, opening it up to a lot of line potential.
