Park Ideas

I thought it might be a cool idea to keep the blog alive by posting pictures of parks around that we go and skate. Hopefully through this we can use the pictures to come to an agreement of what would be good for a park and more of the direction we would like to go.

On Saturday a bunch of us went to Greencastle, IN to skate there 10,000 ft2 park. The park was built by Wally Holiday. There are some cool things in the park but the flow is limited and there is some space that could have been used better.

Here are some pictures from the park.


Here is a cool "noping" section that green castle has. Very simple and fun for everyone (bikes and skateboards)



Here is a miniramp area with a spine. The flow is limited here and people normally get stuck in this section going back and forth. The "Taco" rail is almost unskateable.



Ah Wally Holiday and his bowls. I would love to be able to skate this everyday, however I very rarely find anyone in this bowl. A very big hole and a lot of concrete for the amount of usage.



When I got dropped off at my car I decided to document how crowded Lake Sullivan was. With this amount of people it is very hard and hazardous to skate or ride the park. However with limited amount of spaces the few parks we have seem to fill up pretty quick.

  1. Greencastle is a great park. It has something for every level of skaters. It's a great place. New parks should look at Greencastle before the do anything. I love that place. http://www.oldindyskaters.com

    You are WRONG on this. This is a great great bowl. Trust me. This is a great park and when the Old Indy Skaters come 80% of them are in this bowl. This bowl is RAD.

  3. for the price and the amount it is used there is a lot of space that could have been used for something else. Yes I skate the bowl I love skating big bowls. Unfortunately this bowl has a lot of dead ends the tranny is lumpy and the kids of Greencastle don't really skate it. If it was my way everything would be steep and have pool coping but that is not appealing to the public.
