Ashington skatepark was designed and built by Wheelscape and opened in 2012. It is a medium sized all concrete park with both street and transition elements and can be found in between Ashington and the coastline.
The skatepark is split into two sections, one is a large bowl with an unusual shape that has a lot of corners and a large pump bump in the middle. It is quite deep and also has a small extension on one side and metal coping around the edges. Along side the bowl is a street course that starts with a quarter pipe and opens onto a flat bank with stair set, lined with hubbas and rails that lead down a level to a flat bank with extension.
Ashington skatepark is a great local spot and has something for everyone of all abilities, even though the street run here is quite basic the bowl makes up for it with all its corners and bumps to pump along meaning you don’t have to push once. You should definitely check out this skatepark if you are in the area.
