Skate around Newsome Skatepark

video
so an update from this video, the Newsome skatepark now has a nice big fence all the way round the park. this is a big improvement, it stops mud and dirt being walked in. However, after having high hopes for my local park and considering the decade that we as Huddersfield residents have been waiting for it's completion, i'm not impressed. A classic example of what happens when you get it wrong. get an architect to build a skatepark who isn't themselves a skateboarder. i might liken it to having a hairdresser tailor your clothes because they're handy with a pair of scissors.
