Opened in June 2013, this is a modern and large park was built by Wheelscape with the input of local community groups and young skaters. It has a wide variety of obstacles to entertain all types of rider whether it be bowls or street.
The U-shaped bowl in this park is massive with many feature for beginners and experienced bowl skaters alike. It features a shallow and a deep section that flow into each other with a spine between the two. The lines and transitions are nice and smooth and flow well and there is even a small cradle in the corner of the deep section for the daring.
The street section starts at the edge of the bowl and has some fairly unique obstacles in the form of a Y-shaped ledge and a up-and-over waved bridge. The Y-shaped ledge leads into a block and a grind rail and on to a series of stair sets and banks with a hubba running down the middle. The other part of the street section has a run in down a mellow bank with a upwards curved manny pad. There is also a pump bump to gain speed as you enter the final flat section. This section has two tall flat banks and one lower one.
Overall this park is great for a day session as it brings a lot of unusual things to the table with a lot of potential for long flowing lines. The cradle, Y-shaped ledge and bridge are particular highlights and a lot of fun to skate. Unfortunately there is no lighting provided here but toilets are nearby within the park.
