Okehampton skatepark used to exist as a few metal ramps beside the River Okement. However in December 2012, Wheelscape came along and updated the park with some new concrete obstacles giving it a new lease on life and it is now a mixture of street and transition obstacles.
The skatepark starts on one side with the old metal ramps, made up of a mini ramp with quarter pipes and flat banks running off the platforms that open up into the main body of the skatepark that consists of the newer concrete obstacles. Following on from these is a metal spine next to a concrete jump box with an adjoining hipped bank, a rail and a manny pad with hubba. These lead up to the return ramps which are made up of a quarter pipe next to a a long flat bank with euro gap and stair set inset with a hubba and two rails.
This is a great local spot and has been rejuvenated by the recent additions. There are some nice lines here and the surfaces are smooth and fast. It is a great place for learning the basics as well as for more experienced skaters and should definitely be visited if you are in the area.
