The skatepark on Southtown Common is a fairly simple set up of concrete obstacles on a tarmac base. It is back and forth based and is made up of a flat bank facing a small ramp with a spine and a driveway with hubba between the two, and there is also a ledge next to the driveway. For the transtition skaters there is also a concrete mini ramp with a small one foot extension on the far side of the skatepark.
Southtown Common skatepark is a nice local park and a good palce to practise the basics however it you are after a more challenging skate check out some of the other spots in Great Yarmouth.
