Micklefield skatepark is a small all concrete skatepark that can be found on the outskirts of town and was built in 2009. It is mainly a transitions based park with some street elements thrown into the mix.
The skatepark starts in one corner with a raised platform where the street area is and features stair sets, ledges, hubbas and manny pads. Leading on from this is the large transitions section which features bowls, hips, quarter pipes, spines, volcanoes, bump and a taco. This is the main attraction of the park and has been creatively designed to mean you can flow around the course all day by pumping and without having to push once.
Micklefield skatepark is a fantastic spot and where the street section lacks the rest of the course makes up for it with the transitions. It has been well designed and has a very unique layout like no other, whether you are a transition skater or not you should get yourself down here and check it out.
