Buckhurst skatepark is an all concrete skatepark that can be found in the park behind the college and features a mixture of transition and street elements.
The skatepark starts on one side with a small bowl with metal coping and an open side that leads into the main body of the skatepark and also has a hipped edge. Following from this is a jumpbox that is joined to a hubba, stair set and flat bank and after these is a quarter pipe that acts as a return ramp.
Buckhurst skatepark is a small and simple park that has a basic selection of obstacles arranged in a back and forth arrangement. However, the surfaces are smooth and fast which makes up for it making it a good place for beginners to come and practise the basics but if you are after a more challenging skate check out one of the other skateparks nearby.
