Livingston skatepark is an all concrete park that has existed since the 80s and has recently had a revamp to bring some of the features into the 21st century. It can be found next to the River Almond solely features transitions.
The skatepark is split into 5 sections, the first of which is a double speed bowl. One part is wider and shallower and the other part is deeper and has metal coping around the edge.
The next section is the largest of them all and features a huge, open bowled area that is fairly deep and has another section leading off the side that is long and thin that doubles as a mini ramp with a bowled end.
The third section is another large section that has two open sided circular bowls on one side with a roll over between the two to join them. The rest of the skateable area here is enclosed with a bowled area and has a large pump bump in the middle.
The two new sections that have been recently been added are tagged onto the sides of the existing skatepark and and are both transitions based areas. The first contains a double speed bowl that are linked at their sides and are joined onto a tunnel that leads into another rectangular bowled area. The other section has a bowled area with a flat bank and also a manny pad with a ledge joined on.
Livingston skatepark is a fantastic facility that has stood the test of time and been updated to include some newer, modern features. It is a great place if you are a transitions skater and even if your not you should get down here and check it out for yourself.
