XC skatepark is a large indoor complex, set in a warehouse in Hemel Hempstead. It is made up of bespoke wooden ramps as well as having a large concrete bowl section.
The street section is a long back and forth run bookended by quarter pipes and flat banks with driveways, funboxes, ledges, manny pads, jump boxes, hubbas and rails including a super long one for those who dare. There is also a large wall ride running along the side.
Adjacent to the street section is the bowl, which is long and made up of two sections one is rectangular the short side of which opens up into larger more open bowl with a kinked side. It is a nice bowl with lots of little corners and transitions to pump around. Next to the bowl is an old school pool, much like the ones on the west coast with real pool coping and tiling. It is in a kidney bean shape and is one of the main attractions of the skatepark.
This is a great indoor park with something for everyone, whether you ride transition or street. The surfaces are smooth and the selection of obstacles on the street course is wide. The pool and the bowl here are also great and there is even a transfer over the gap for those who are daring enough!
