Cramlington skatepark was designed and built by Gravity, opening in 2008. It is a large all concrete park that consists of both transition and street elements that can be found in Alexandra Park.
On one side of the skatepark is a kinked rectangular bowl with a flat bottom and metal coping around the edges. Leading off the platform on the back side of the bowl is a series of flat banks and quarter pipes with a stair set, pole jam, extension, taco, hubbas and rails inset. These then open up into the main body of the skatepark which is a open, flat area with a pump bump in the middle. At the other side of the skatepark is a small plaza style area raised up with flat banks featuring a series of ledges, manny pads, hubbas and rails.
Cramlington skatepark is a great local spot, there is a good selection of obstacles here which have been arranged in a creative way to make good use of the space. There are some nice flowing lines here with well placed transitions for pumping along, making this a good place for both beginners and more experienced skaters alike.
