Verwood skatepark was designed and built by Gravity, opening in 2013. It is a large all concrete park that can be found in Potterne Park and is made up of street and transition elements with some brick work thrown into the mix.
On the back side of the skatepark is a kinked bowl that has a flat bottom and has two differing depths and has a tall ledge wrapped around on of the corners. Off the back of this is a bowled edge that forms a spine with the bowl and opens up into the main body of the park. Leading on from this is a jump box adjoined to a volcano and the run is finished with two adjoining quarter pipes set at two different heights. Adjacent to this run is more of a street focused section that starts with a platform with a hipped bank and two hubbas and following this, in the back corner, is a narrow taco that can be used as a return ramp.
This is a great local park with a decetn selection of obstacles. The layout is well designed and makes use of the available space well and the surfaces are smooth. Verwood is a perfect spot for beginners and experienced skaters alike as there is something for everyone of all abilities here.
