Completed in August of last year, Ashgrove Skatepark is one of Brisbane's newest "street style facilities". It's small in size but the placement of obstacles provides a good flow. A quarter pipe at one end and a mellow street quarter at the other keeps you going between the various curbs, ledges and an A frame rail. It has a circuit design to be ridden any way. You can go round n round 'til you get that trick, or reach exhaustion. Because of it's size, it gets tricky to ride with a large number of riders. The smaller curbs are great for beginners while a more advanced rider will appreciate the A frame rail, there's something for all skill levels. But beware of the slipperiness! We know from experience that it will only get better, it's just the fresh paint.
