Here's a composite-overview of Zionsville's skatepark. The park is all concrete, with a massive bowl complex, and a smallish street area. Located at the intersection of Ford Rd. and Mulberry Street, in front of the Zionsville Middle School, the skatepark was clearly well-designed, but poorly executed. The bowl has sloped, uneven rollout platforms... ripples all through the transitions, making it feel like skating in a washbowl... kinks and bumps everywhere. Had it been built competently, it would have been a sure-fire winner. But, it's barely worth the effort to get to from Indianapolis, a mere 20 miles or so away, and it sits vacant and deserted much of the time.

This is a fairly well-designed, but not so well-built, all-concrete skatepark that has a small street section, and a fairly large bowl complex. The street section has quite a few flat banks of varying szes; A couple of very tall handrails; A couple of very abrupt wedge banks; A euro gap; And, three large hubba-style ledges.

The bowl ranges from about five to ten feet deep, and has a small "pump bump" in the flatbottom, as well as a large, over-vert clamshell. The bowl has a very noticable "washboard" effect, due to ripples and bumps in the concrete finishing. Apparently, it was designed by Grindline, but built by a local contractor with very limited experience in skatepark construction. Because of that, it's probably not worth more than a half-hour drive to check it out. -Bud Stratford

There is a skatepark here under construction, due to open in the Fall of 2008. It will be located in Mulberry Fields, at the southwest corner of Ford Road and Whitestown Road. It looks to be a Grindline or Dreamland design, all concrete, with bowl and street elements. - Bud

The deep end of the bowl is worth the trip. Sweet transition and relaxed hump in the middle of the flats. The big clamshell you just avoid but no worries because there is enough room to skate hard and do great tricks on the rest of the park. The street park is cramped but fun and manageable.

This park isn't as bad as its description makes it sound. Maybe they fixed the ripples, but we didn't see any. I'd probably rate the street & tranny skating higher if we were beginners, but there weren't enough connected banks for us to put together series of runs we could make. The bowl was nice, but there was no bank to get into it & we haven't learned to drop in yet. We did have fun starting in the shallow end, hitting the hump in the middle to get speed, & practicing our carving. Not as good as Monon as Carmel, but you're likely to have a decent concrete park all to yourself if you find yourself near Zionsville. It's only 15 minutes from my parents' house, so it's worth going to again.
