Override skatepark is a large indoor park that is situated in a warehouse in Jarrow. It is constructed of bespoke wooden ramps and set up in a fairly standard park arrangement.
The main section of the skatepark is formed of some large ramps in a back and forth arrangement. It features quarter pipes, flat banks, a large vert wall and a large roll in on either side and in between these is a series of jump boxes, spines and volcanoes. Next to this is the basic street park that features a series of falt banks in a line with hubbas, ledges and manny pads, and at the back of this is a large roll in leading up ot a foam pit.
Override skatepark is a great local park. The ramps here are large and have a decent amount of space between them, it is a great place for beginners to come and practise the basics or even for more experienced skaters too.
