Mile End Skatepark

The park is an all concrete, marble smooth creation, courtesy of the fantastic team at Gravity. The emphasis is on pushing skaters to be more creative with some slightly different, and updated takes on world famous skate-spots.
The street section flows well and is mainly block and bank based with a few rails. On one side of the skatepark, linking all the lines of the park together, in the corner is a 4 feet high flatbank bank hip, with Koston block on the top. Good angles, with plenty of room for all manner of flip tricks over the hip and slide on the block. This leads to a good size flat-bar rail, block rail, to one of the more video influenced obstacles. The long Toblerone block/bank.
This is long T-block type obstacle, but one side of the t-block is a tight flat bank. Also adjoining to the bottom of the flat-bank is tight 2.5 ft deep dish in the middle. Making it a gap to slide over.
There also is a wedge block similar to the black marble banks/block spot in Barcelona
The bowl follows suit with the rest of the parks challenging feel, once you drop in there is no stopping! It starts around 4 feet deep and rolls down to the deep end of around 8 feet at its deepest. The bowl connects straight back in to the street course leaving a few options of gaps in and out of the bowl. hectic nature of it
On the whole, the park’s a pretty good use of the space, certainly something for everyone in there.
