This skatepark is located in Spalding Park in Champaign, IL. An all-concrete skatepark, the "street" section is very, very difficult to skate due to overall bad design and construction, and the spined, concrete mini ramp is very tight, with excessively protruding coping (although the bowls are quite good). It's only worth a stop in, if you're a competent enough skater to deal with the park's many (and, obvious) flaws. -Bud Stratford, [email protected]
Skate the Bowls everything else sucks. Combi (Has 8 foot bowl +1 ft oververt connected to 6 ft kidney bowl connected to 6 ft "rectangle" bowl with 1 ft oververt extension on one side) also has 2, 5 ft halfpipes/spine with fast, bumpy tranny (designed to be a vert ramp for midgets apparently) 4X4X4 unfun box with rail that normal footed sk8r's have to hit FS. four 2-3 ft boobs, pyramid hip about 6-7 ft tall, 4 ft mini 1/4 connected to 6 ft 1/4 with corner that goes into escalator then wall morphs into a bank. loading dock = maybe a 4-5 stair, kinked hubba ledge and finally, a hand rail with giant bump at the end from cutting/lowering the rail incorrectly. There's a park monitor in the summer until 6pm, no bathroom or water fountain from fall until spring. If you're passing through Come shred the bowls and drink some beer!!!! but if i were you i wouldn't drive more than an hour to skate it... BADASS 11 ft+2 ft vert birch bowl across the street in a warehouse that is taken apart and laying in numbered sections, the dick wont put it together or even sell the thing to anyone. what a waste.
All concrete. It's really crappy! Mini's not even worth riding, a pyramid with a rail going down one side, a rail that is located right in front of a fence so no way to come up to it, a couple bumps for huge tricks, a square, kidney and egg bowl all connected the best thing there are the bowls, go for the bowls or you can skate the tool box located outside the fence. Open to dusk, free no pads, its a piece of crap don't come to it if you do bring a jackhammer it's really that bad.
The bowl is very skatable, it has trannies from 6 feet to 9 feet, the "street course" is crappy.
