From Emerald Isle Commissioner Roy Brownlow (public Facebook post 2023):

"Concrete Pipeline...owned by the Heverly's. It had a broad, deep concrete bowl that you could ride in perpetuity, or as long as your legs could keep pumping as you went around the rim and from side to side. This park was located where the CVS Pharmacy is located now. The park also had a skate run that resembled surfing on a wave, and it had a path through a big concrete pipe, but it wasn't that big and you had to be sure to duck as you entered the pipe and rode through it as if riding in the tube or "barrel" of a hollow breaking wave. I remember seeing one poor chap, not quite advanced enough to take on that skate run, nearly get knocked out when he entered the turn before the concrete "pipeline" with too much speed. Good thing skateboard helmets were required to ride at the park!"
