Looks less skateable than midtown on a saturday.

This design does not take into consideration a realistic skatepark flow. These types of designs are irresponsible because they couple large, mismatched obstacles with dangerous, intersecting lines of flow. Additionally, they commit large amounts of money & resources to a poor design. Next time, make a greater effort to understand the intended user instead of dropping ramps into a space—you will save money & lives.
It’s always sad to see a skatepark designed by people who have never been on a skateboard…
This will go right there http://www.thrashermagazine.com/articles/certified-piece-of-suck/
this is a rendering so i’m sure its not accurate to what will actually happen. but that does look ridiculous. its not that big a space and cramming it with large obstacles is a bad idea. utilising some of the natural elements of the space would be best. Astoria is such a success. Please stick to that formula Steve!!
