Swansea Skatepark has to be seen to be believed, its a seriously epic skatepark and one of the best we’ve had the pleasure of skating so far. Part of its beauty is that was designed and built by Convic who continue to create stunning and thoughtful skateparks all over the country.
In detail, Swansea Skatepark was only finished in early 2011 and features a long list of banks, quarters and transitions ranging from 3ft – 5ft that create the outer rim of the park. The banks are littered with hips, euro-gaps and fast sliding ledges There’s also a 6-stair staircase with hubba ledges a pier 7 ledge. But wait that’s not all, to round out the North end of the park there’s also an epic 5ft bowl with stunning transitions and stomping coping. Just awesome!
The surface is slick and smooth and all the coping and steel edging fast. There’s a lot of BMX’rs and scooters there but equally as many skaters and at times it can get pretty chaotic… but you just have to deal with that.
Plenty of free parking around, amenities nearby and some impressive fish and chips down the road. When you’re done here, not too far away is another Convic special at Wallsend. Yes!
