So far on this journey we’ve hit almost 70 skateparks, some good, some even great but a lot of them very average… but today we were lucky enough to find one of the best! Town Beach Skatepark is just pure awesomeness.
Built and designed by Convic it spans a large park area just on the break-wall near Town Beach in Port Macquarie. It is typically beautifully well thought out and the attention to detail is everything you expect from a Convic design.
To detail every intricate part of this skateboarding wonderland would be pointless so I’ll just point out a few of the highlights. The main feature is the split level bowl that goes from a silky smooth 4ft shallow end all the way up to 7ft in the deep. It’s simply stunning and so versatile, perfect as s mini, a carving bowl or even for big airs and exits.
Then there is the smaller 4ft mini/bank half-pipe that’s as unique as it is fun. Great little transitions and fantastic for all the lip smacking fun you can think of. Finally, the surface – you have to ride it to understand, Convic have created something magical here. We’ve been to many other Convic Skateparks, but the cement here is highly evolved!
The rest of the park is a series of banks, ledges, boxes, rails, stairs and transitions all perfectly positioned. No edge is left is left untouched, I mean why wouldn’t you you add some coping or a steel edge to everything!
Obviously a skatepark of such awesomeness is gonna be busy, and yeah there’s heaps of scooters kids and BMX’rs. But there’s heaps of skaters too and the space is big enough and so well designed that it all just works. Plenty of free parking and amenities around and of course there’s a beach next door. 5 big stars!
