Tiptree skatepark was designed & built by Wheelscape, opening in 2013. It is an all concrete course and combines both street and transitions elements all in one place. The skatepark consists of two runs, one more transitions focused and he other following a more plaza style street track.
The runs open up on one side with a line made up of hipped flat banks and a quarter pipe joined onto the end. The transitions side then starts with a volcano adjoined to a roll over for pumping. These then lead up to a jump box with up and down kicker lined by hubbas and the return ramp at the end is a tall quarter pipe.
The other side of the skatepark then starts with a stair set with a rail and half flat bank running up one side. Either side of the stairs is another flat bank and a bowled edge that steps up onto a large flat area and a flat bank with wall ride as a return ramp. On the back side of this flat bank is a small bowl with a flat bottom and some tight corners to pump around.
This is a great local park with a lot to do whether you like transitions or street skating there is something here for you. The obstacles arent too challenging meaning it is good for beginners but the lines are long and flowing giving the more experienced riders a challenge. This is a great skatepark and should be high on your list of places to visit if you are in the area.
