Mapes, as it’s affectionately known, is a great little skate park within easy reach for most people. It has a few interesting features including a great marble ledge and manny pad, a huge vert wall and what has to be the best concrete ramp in the city (probably the best ramp full stop).

King Edwards skatepark is the closest skatepark to the city centre and is also the most street orintated park in Nottingham.

The park consist of a concrete pathway that runs in a square with various obstacles spread out along the pathway. The obstacles are well thought out, quite challenging and provide lots of different ways to skate them.

As you pass the football ground (on your left) take the second left at the big junction. You’ll see a park on your left with a small play area for kids. The skate park is right next door. Lady Bay is the oldest surviving Nottingham skatepark.

Description:

LBC represent.

Lady Bay was recently redeveloped to add a few new features to the park. The new layout has a rad super long block (with coping rather than angle iron) and a supra long manny pad. There’s a concrete flat bank with a set of stairs laid in for grind, tails and blunts.

The surface wasn’t relayed during the recent development so there are a few lumps and bumps from where the old obstacles were seated.

Key Features:

  •  Long manny pad
  •  Long ledge
  •  Kinked rail
  •  Half Bowled Mini ramp

Rating:

Okay.

Description:

Nottingham’s super-mega park really is an amazing beast of a skatepark. It provides a great mix of street and transition based obstacles.

It’s so good that it’s often very busy and can feel a little ‘performance’ if you’re just after a little warm-up sesh.

Hucknall is a seriously rad skate park and well worth a visit. It’s very similar in size and layout to Long Eaton. A substantial area within Titchfield park has been donated. The main concrete section of the park is huge with tons of variety but as well as that there’s a large smooth tarmac area around the edge that also features some obstacles as well as alternative routes into the park itself.

Standhill is an excellent concrete skate park that’s often overlooked. It has a really good mix of both transition and street obstacles.

It has a really good flat bar too for getting rail tricks down before hitting a proper street handrail (if you can ever find one that is!)

Plenty of open space too to work on flatland or have a game of skate.

Really, really good for those that are just starting out and new to skateparks. Often quiet and easy going.

There are so many lines and things to skate if you’re up for it at Radcliffe. There’s a micro mini, a bowl, rhythm section, vert wall as well as hubbas and rails.

Considering it is one of Nottingham’s oldest skateparks and that it’s built from wood the park is in great condition. The Parish Council and local user group have done a great job of improving, tweaking and maintaining the park.

Okay.

Kimberley Skate Park

(about)

Long Eaton

long_eaton_skatepark-west_park2

Location:

West Park in Long Eaton. The skate park is located at the very end of West Park within a fenced in area.

CLICK HERE FOR A GOOGLE MAPS VIEW

Description:

Long Eaton skate park is probably one of the best parks in Nottingham and has some of the best street obstacles in the city. Whilst it has a mini ramp it’s very much a street park full of really well thought out obstacles and placements. This place would keep you entertained for a very long time! It’s floodlit! making it skateable on the darkest of winter evenings.

Well done Long Eaton skaters for putting together a fine skate park built beautifully and with an expectional attention to detail. I’ll bet there are still a ton of NBD’s to do.

This park is good for all skill levels

Key Features:

  •  Pretty much all of it. There are so many good lines and obstacles it’s hard to pick just one. The only thing that looks a little sketchy is the beasty mini ramp which kinda feels like two quarters stuck together.

Rating:

Awesome!

Always quiet.

Good

    • Forty Two Shop 22/01/2014 at 10:41 Permalink

      Newstead is a rad little park. The hubba, rail and kicker are good fun. I find the mini super hard to skate though.

    Good page but some don’t have photos?

    • Forty Two Shop 22/01/2014 at 10:39 Permalink
