Updated 5 July 2014 – Kurri Kurri skatepark has been recently updated with a spanking new section designed and built by Convic, we have already added new photos and an updated review will be up soon
Yep, Kurri Kurri is another one of the pre-fab cement skateparks that litter the Hunter Valley (Maitland order an essay & Cessnock), nothing too exciting here. The setup is emulates a 3.5ft spined mini by sticking quarters at each end and a funbox/quarters in the middle. At least this one has the spine which is better than a lot of these pre-fab parks offer.
Just beside the mini is a classic old fashioned snake-run that must have been built in the 80’s (the surface is well beaten). So make sure you pack the longboard for some carving!
It’s located in Lions Park and there’s a bit of off street parking around, but not a lot else. The park itself is mainly used by locals as a place to hang, and mostly only BMX’rs even bother to use the skatepark.
