with the pool vs plaza debate raging at skateboard.com.au i would like to thank the great lakes council in forster nsw for taking a bold step in skatepark design in creating the new downhill specific park which is very poorly photographed below. The urethane has been burning on stage one consisting a snoboard type set up of three lengthy runs of varying degrees (green, blue and black) all originating from the peak and terminating at the entrance pictured below. The silky smooth surface has seen plenty of action over the past weeks. Rumour has it that stage two will take a leaf from modern skatepark design ala tiles and pool coping in park built pools and stairs and handrails in street parks to incorporate real houses and residents to give that real old school feel of bombing your local hill. Us oldies are petitioning for a chair lift tho!!!
You can never photograph hills properly!!
