This skatepark is a great example of how an unusually shaped and limited space of land can be utilised successfully. It was wrapped around an existing football court but still ticks the boxes for what you want from a skatepark, silky smooth floor and well planned and proportioned obstacles.
The start of the run features a series of quarter pipes with bowled corners leading into a flat bank hip with a Koston block on top. This then flows into a straight with a long bank lining one side with a pair of ledges that can double for manny pads. In between the two ledges is small love seat with coping and a ledge on top of the bank. At the end of the straight are two corner to corner quarter pipes, with one leading into a large mini ramp.
This park perfect for an afternoon session, and well worth the trip if your after something different. Get down and check it out for yourself.
