The Gould Skatepark is Done!

October 24, 2011

A Wall Ride, Hand Rails and a Half Bowl. Nothing wrong with that.

After three months work the Gould Academy skatepark is finally complete.

From the old park to the new park in one quick right turn.

A hundred foot long street course, crazy

 The rails were welded in place this past Wednesday.  I finished putting a little angle up onto the wall ride.  There’s nothing left to do but skate and the Gould skaters are tearing it up whenever they have a free moment.  There’s footage coming up, but here are a few photos to start with.

Week two and it was a long way to get it all done.

I love the pattern of 2×6′s, but I love skating the finished bowl even better.

The Old Section of the Park leading into the new part.

I just like the way the hand rails and stairs come out of nowhere.

      I remember skating with you guys at Rye Airfield once and I remember skating the Oxford Hills park with a super nice guy and his son. Get in touch if you’re up this way and I’ll make things happen.

    Is it true that no one can skate this beautifully made park unless your a Gould student?

      We have a community skate night on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30 p.m. You need your own skate and a workable helmet. Just reach out to me.
