Show us your local parks

Thought i'd show you the local parks that are within a 30 minute or so drive from my yard!
Sedbury: 5 minute walk
Image
Quirky little 12 foot wide metal mini with only 6 foot flat bottom!
Chepstow: 5minute drive
Image

Woolaston: 10 minute drive
Image
mellow street course and spined 12 foot wide mini

Lydney 20 minute drrive:
Image
Cinderford 40 minute drive:
Image

I very much doubt I would have started skating again if there wernt so many parks everywhere! I havnt got any pictures of the new Newport park , and recently discovered churchdown in glocester too and still not been over the bridge to Bristol to see whats about there now!
Be interested to see what the rest of you guys have got in a half hour or so radius!

Fear and rollings slowly getting better! They've resurfaced the mini and taken out some of the clutter!
Not working next Thursday so tempted to come up to exist - especially if its still raining!

Hyson Green (Nottingham). Inner city enough to keep non-local kids, their scooters and parents out of the way. The local kids must've learned early enough that owning a scooter will get you beat up fast (non by skaters or bmxers... just in general by any average passer-by/hangers-on of the area...) and I guess that the lack of a bowl also keeps away, what I call, the dogtowners... 5-10minutes drive from where I live. Forty-Two shop website calls it the best miniramp in Notts... Not totally sure as I haven't been to all Notts parks yet, but I don't feel like disagreeing either... the fact that is also the only park with real graffiti instead of 'whatsherfaceisaneasybitch' and squirting cocks give it extra cool points IMO...

Houston, Texas. Scooters and bmx are not allowed in this one. 'perfect' weather is very subjective. It can get to 104+F/40+C in August/Sept. :twisted: It opens at ~9am so during the school year, no kids in the morning and usually only 2-3 other guys at most until about 2-3pm when the kids get out of school. Not too bad. :mrgreen:

There is another one equal distance as this one from me that is under construction now and it's roughly twice the size. I'm going to try to get some progress pics tomorrow.

"With 72,000 square feet of skate surface, the skate park will cater to the young and young-at-heart. The unique design includes a world-class competition-scale Texas bowl featuring a full pipe, 12-foot vert ramp, 10-foot bowl, banked walls and speed hips, plus a couple of backyard-style pools and three beginner/intermediate/advanced flow bowls. A section designed to emulate the street-skating experience will have ledges, rails, benches, banks, quarter pipes and stair obstacles, providing fun and creative challenge for skaters of all levels and interests."

Here's our local abomination... needless to say - its empty pretty much all of the time...

Of course it would be bad form of me to say who is responsible for this, but I can say there's not a single BEND in the CRETE anywhere.... ;)

Oof that's pretty classy actually.
My old local was Roberts Park in Saltaire, which even with the angled-mini-for-no-reason actually managed to be fun in a very limited space. Unfortunately I was working long hours at the time and could only ever get there when it was fully packed with 5 year olds on scooters, rolling in a train the whole time.
Testament to the flow of the place, but impossible to get your own line down without causing carnage.

I've been living down the road from that, in Windsor, for 20 years. And to think of all the fun I could have had, and all the money I've wasted on trips to skateparks around the country. Still, now that they're talking about getting rid of the South Bank, maybe they could replace it with one of those

It's in Memorial Park, Ottershaw.

However the graffiti are not quite as sophisticated as the one at Hyson Green I posted previously... :roll:
