Situated in a disused lot at the corner of New Bird street and Jamaica Street is a DIY concrete skatepark built by local skaters and has remained there since 2010. It has had a difficult time staying there with the local council trying to sell the land on however the local skaters fought the proposal and won meaning it can remain in that spot for now.
This skatepark is central to the liverpool skate scene and features bowled corners, pump bumps, flat banks, hips and grind bars. There are also some open sided bowls for those after a more transition based skate and a lot of wallride potential here too.
The ground here is not as smooth as some of the professionally built parks and the coping situation here is about 50/50, with some of the obstacles having it and some not. However it can be excused as the effort put in by the local skating enthusiasts to create something for the skating community is amazing and they have managed to create great local spot to come down to practise the basics or have a session with friends.
