Kings Park skatepark is a large all concrete park in Bournemouth. It features a combination of transitions and street obstacles including a large plaza style area and a bowl.
The plaza area is housed in a square section with two of the edges being bowled out adn the opposite two having a flat bank. In the centre, running off the bowled edge is a funbox with a hubba and a rail and coming down the middle of one of the banks is a large stair set with two hubbas and a rail. On the raised level at the top of the stair set is a funbox with a wall ride, manny pad and staggered ledge.
One of the corners of the plaza area opens up into a long curved mini ramp that curls around to open up onto a large bowl. The bowl here is deeper than the mini ramp and also features a large exntension.
This is a great local park with a bit of somethign for everyone. The long curved mini ramp is a lot of fun to pump around and gain speed in the build up to the bowl and the plaza section is basic but well laid out with a lot of space. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced this will be a great place for you to come down and have a session.
