Five Bridges Plaza is a simple concrete skatepark that can be found under the 5 Bridges roundabout on the Gateshead Highway. It is made up of concrete obstacles and has solely a street focus.
The skatepark starts on one side with a long, angular flat bank which opens up onto a flat area with a series of rails and ledges. After these is a manny pad, bench and a kicker to high ledge and on the back side is a two tiered ledge as well. There is also a mini ramp on the back side as well with a small extension.
5 Bridges Plaza is a nice local spot with some basic obstacles, the surfaces are smooth and it is undercover making it a great place to come on a wet day. It is a popular spot with the locals as well so get yourself down here if you are in the area.
