Its one of the best, beside Stamford and Fairfield. Personally it's my favorite. Huge tranny around most of the out side, steel coping on almost everything and the middle is set up like a giant street section with everything you could want, trust me its worth driving to. Gas station up the street for drinks and whatever.


This park was just recently built (August-November 2011) and brings people from all around the East Coast. There have been people from New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and probably more, who continually come to visit the park because they like it so much.

"It's the best park so far on the East Coast." - Tim Upson - owner of Enclave Skate Shop in New Haven, CT also local skate hero.

"I'll be coming back here to skate, it's worth the hour and half drive." - Skaters that visit the park

Huge tranny around most of the outside, steel coping on almost everything and the middle is pretty much a giant street section. There's a gas station up the street, local pizza shops less than a mile away, and lots of cool people to skate with.

One of the better parks in the north east. Really fun with good flow. A few of the transitions are a little too tight for my liking. The whole park is a big circle mixing tranny and street elements. Small concrete mini at the far end, double sided curb, flat banks, hips, and hubbas. Nothing is huge, the bowl corner is getting into the big range. I dig parks that mix the surrounding nature into the design, and having natural shade from all the giant trees is really nice, and soemthing thats missing from most parks.
