Situated in King’s Fields, this skatepark was designed and constructed by Wheelscape and opened in April 2011. It has been designed to be one continuous loop integrating a large bowl and multi-level plaza style street section. This concrete park is split into three main sections with an incredibly smooth surface and some unusual and unique obstacles that are a lot of fun to skate.
The first section is very street oriented and features two slopes, the first has a 4 stair set lined with two rails and a small hubba next to it. This moves onto a small ledge which then leads into the second slope which in turn flows into the bowl section. Along the entire side of this section is a fairly unique long, double kinked hubba perfect for those long grinds.
The bowl section features a flat bottomed 5 foot bowl with bowled end along with a 1 foot extension that doubles as a spine over to quarter on the other side which can also be used as a mini ramp. If a spine transfer is too much then there is also a mellow roll in to the quarter pipe as well.
The final L-shaped section connect the other side of the bowl back to the start of the street section and features a jump box and astro turf gap with a ledge. These lead into the corner which is comprised of two quarter pipes connected with a hip that flows into the small driveway leading up to a bank with pole jam on top.
Overall this park has a lot to offer to all skaters, with good flow between the obstacles. However the obstacles are quite close together and at busy times it can be quite crowded, so for a quiet session make sure you visit on a weekday in the daytime.
Unlike any other outdoor park, to use it you are required to fill out a consent form signed by your parents if you are under 16 and pay a fee of £5 to use. If you are over 16 the above still applies only without the parental signature, see website for more details.
