Boada Skatepark (Colchester)

Boada skatepark, located within  Shrub End Playing Field, is an all concrete bowl designed by Gravity and opened in 2003. It is an open, flat bottomed bowl with coping around the edges.

The bowl is split into two down the middle with a island that forms a volcano along the middle. Either side of this are two rounded bowls one with an over vert and on one of the opposite sides to these there is an extension.

This is a nice local park with smooth surfaces and a lot of space between the curves to adjust between runs. The shape of the edge also allow for you to easily pump around the bowl all day without having to push once.
