I’d be stoked too If I lived in a city with a good skate park. Oh wait, I do. Anyway, The City of Stoke On Trent (True!) in England is coming up on the first anniversary of their skate park called, what else, but Stoke Plaza? It looks pretty damn good (from the Internet at least.) I’m not much for today’s street parks, but this one has plenty of banks and an interesting layout that looks fun. Topping it off is an outlying system of skate paths, an interesting concept that appears to be gathering momentum among builders and advocates. These pictures are from the UK Sketchy Skateboarding website.
If you think I’ve gotten obsessive compulsive about skatepark construction photos, Sketchy Skateboarding takes the cake in that department. There are construction photos of both the big park and the skate path section. It’s not all street either. There’s even a good sized bowl.
The weather in these photos reminds me that I live in Oregon and those clouds are about to head my way. Check out the skate path. It’s sort of along the lines of Portland’s skate spots idea. Maybe not exactly, but a similar idea is planned for the entrance path to the new Pier Park.
Check out sketchyskateboarding.co.uk and tell ’em we sent you.
