New concrete: Long Eaton skatepark, Derbyshire

We checked out the newly built Long Eaton skatepark by Freestyle skateparks.
Lots of exciting stuff there, a lot of elements we know and love in similar sized parks, such as Hucknall, Mansfield and even some elements reminiscent of Chesterfield.

Have a look...

The left side has a long flatbar, some varied size blocks and small hubbas.

We pan around to the right to see a Pier 7 style manny pad, plus varied banks and blocks. On the far right theres a good size step up and big rail and hubba, very similar to Hucknall.

As you can see, a quarter to roll into all of this

The quarter is backed onto a mini ramp, with a spine that gets wider

The mini is nice, but the sun is in your eyes

Over the other side of the park (after you've rolled in past all of the blocks) we get taco, mellow bank and rail

The taco is fun, although a lot of people approach it from different angles which makes it a collision zone

Looking back the other way, the step up, big rail and hubba

A small two stair next to the Pier 7 style manny pad too

Local lurkers were already using the taco to launch to flat....

Go there, it's definately worth checking out, it's got quite a street feel to it if you like the sorts of obstacles above! We do!

Find it a West Park Leisure Centre:

you can't miss the leisure centre. The park is quite a walk from the carpark, just follow the path past the football fields and you see it on the left!

  1. this parks not to bad but long eaton is well a pile of crap bewteen derny and nottingham.saves it a bit being next to sports centre i hope staff keep an eye on it.

  2. sorry thats supposed to say say derby not derny.i need glasses or smaller fingers for keyboard.LOL.

  3. Looks cool,much better than the old one. Does it get really busy or is it spacious?

  4. As its new it's pretty busy, but I'm sure it will calm down... Go on a weekday or early if you want to have a chilled session

  5. nice new skatepark got to go one day

  6. go when the brats are at school in midday.its perfect.virtually dead if you like a quite life and no ponces in your way.

  7. Do you know if they pick on people who are just starting to skate or are the people there nice and helpfull? I am a girl and im just starting to learn skateboarding i would like to go to long eaton skatepark as it is the closest park to me as i live in beeston....

    It woudnt really be a nice start if someone would pick on me because i fall over or somit and also is there like a quite little corner or something that newbiess cud go to?

  8. I believe what you said made a great deal of sensе.
    But, thіnk on this, what if you werе to wrіte a aωesome post title?

    ӏ ain't suggesting your content is not solid, however what if you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean "New concrete: Long Eaton skatepark, Derbyshire" is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo's home page and watch hοw thеy wгite post headlines to get
    viewers intereѕted. You might try adԁing a video or a
    relateԁ pic oг two to get pеople intеrested abοut eνerуthing've got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
