Located right on the M5 is this surprisingly awesome little skatepark that really has something for everyone. The main feature is a good old fashioned kidney bowl that hits about 9ft down the deep end. It’s certainly not for the faint at heart and has a fairly snappy transition – but the old schoolers will just love it, and even for the younger dudes it’s fun to just carve around.
The rest of the park is an eclectic range of banks, fun-boxes and rails that are well thought out compared to other similar skateparks. It includes a couple of whacky little vert walls, a nice 3ft corner bowl and a superb 1.5ft mini section that is perfect for younger skaters to hone their lip tricks. The slightly slippery surface isn’t perfect but there’s a lot of fun to be had here. Also worth noting it’s heavily used by scooters and BMX’rs.
The surrounding park has a range of facilites including a free car park, public toilets and a kiddies playground. It’s also really close to a shopping centre so there’s plenty of food around.
