Elland skatepark was designed and built by Wheelscape and opened in 2012. It was a revamp of the old ramps and now features both street and transition elements and can be found in Hullen Edge Park.
The main skateable area here is a large, open area that has a bowled corner and a wedge in the opposite one with a pyramid with hubba, ledges, manny pad, rail and pole jam between them. Leading off this area are two other sections, the first features a spine and roll over that lead up to a quarter pipe. The other is a more street inspired part that has a flat bank leading down with hubbas, a rail and drop that lead up to a quarter pipe.
Elland skatepark is a nice local spot that has a bit of everything. The surfaces are smooth and the obstacles are well spaced. The layout has been well thought out and makes good use of the space meaning its a good place for all abilities.
