Benson's skatepark (officially "City of Benson Skate Park") is a prefab steel setup on a very smooth, concrete slab. The ramps are surprisingly well-built, fast, and fun, and the slab is also pretty smooth and fast (minus a few over-sized control joints). There are bathrooms directly across the street, and picnic benches, shade structures, and grills on site, if you're the sort of bloke that wants to chill and grill while you're skating. As far as obstacles go, all of the "usual stuff" is present and accounts for: a large bank ramp; a mid-height quarterpipe; a bank-to-box-to-bank setup; a spined quarterpipe; and an array of railslide bars, benches, and boxes. The ramps look very "Woodward Ramps" to me (not your typical Skatewave garbage), with the spine obviously being built by a different company. For such a small-town skatepark, this one is reasonably well done; it's worth the quick leg-stretcher stop if you happen to be cruising by on I-10. -Bud Stratford, Everything Skateboarding/Concrete Disciples. Tuesday, March 20th, 2018. They have a metal ramp setup now. Would be pretty cool except some dumba** decided to sandblast the graffiti off of the ramp. Ok; now they made it grip tape and you don't slide to your safety when you fall. Instead it grabs you, twists you & throws you down. But they have ramps now. - Joe Mudd, 3/2/2009
