Faringdon skatepark was designed and built by Gravity, opening in 2012. It is an all concrete skatepark that can be found on the east side of town and features a selection of transition and street elements.
The skatepark starts on one side with a quarter pipe and a flat bank that open up onto the main body of the park. Following these is a lower level that has a flat bank, stair set, rail, wall ride and ledge leading down to it, and following this is a pyramid with rainbow hubba and another wallride with a ledge inset. For the return ramp at the end is a bowled edge with a speed bowl inset and a pump bump in front.
Faringdon skatepark is a good local spot that has been well designed and contains some nice obstacles and ramps. The surfaces are also super smooth making it a great place for beginners and experienced skaters as well.
