Ripley’s Shred it or Not!

Ripleys skate park

Yes folks, it’s the same people that bring you modern day cannibals, a woman who had 69 babies and the 200 pound tumor. The 9th wonder of the world appears to be something known as the “Urban Jib Park.” Witness the wonder and the horror of The Ripley’s Urban Rail Park – an urban rider’s dream, according to the folks at Polson Pier in Toronto, where it is located. Although open since December 21st, pictures of the actual park appear to be as rare as ostrich-footed Africans. Apparently, they built some rails at the bottom of a pile of snow for the snowboarders and put up a big heated tent with some ramps for the skaters. Things must be bleak in Toronto, because you can even buy a season pass for all this awesomeness:

20ft wide 4 foot mini-ramp
4 stair with hand rail
60 ft wide bank with grind box at the top
5 ft ¼ pipe
6 ft ¼ pipe
Fun box with rail

They will have unspecified rock concerts, pro demos and contests. I predict that this park sucks – BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!

Alright, maybe it’s not bad if you are in a pay-to-ride situation. It’s probably very nice to have something new to ride for the winter. Although I’m sure any year-round Toronto parks operators will be bummed. Are there permanent indoor parks in Toronto? I can’t bring myself to Google it. This video was found at Friendly Skateboards, the folks running the skateboard clinics at the venue.


  1. “Canada’s largest urban jib park?” WTF!!!!?????

  2. You guys nailed that one with your review… Lots of other parks in Toronto, including indoor. And losing any business for them is a drag, especially to people who aren’t in it for the long haul. Shred Central has been indoors for 10 years. Support your local shops & parks, especially when you know they’re run by skaters. Dance with the one that brung ya!
