City

they are finishing development of a city
public skatepark. I saw from a distance that they were
pouring concrete, but I figured it would be a run of
the mill mediocre park with mostly street skating in
mind, with maybe a couple of 4 foot walls with
transition on them here or there, or even maybe a
little 4 to 5 foot bowl at most. Well, I wasn't
prepared for what I saw.

They have almost finished construction on a HUGE pool
with vert. This pool is better than anything in
probably 90% of the public parks in so cal. The
shallow end (no roll in indcluded, strictly drop in)
is no more shallow than 6 feet, which empties into a
huge bowl area that is about 8 to 9 feet deep with one
section containing a wall around it that extends the
height to about 11 feet with a good 2 feet of vert.
Then it empties to the left, like and L shape, into a
double clover-like section one side curls around in a
nice wide big bowl, the other side is a super tight,
verted, backyard pool-like section. In these areas the
depth does not look to be under 8 or 9 feet. It's
massive, and I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what they are
doing building this thing in Oxford, Mississippi. The
skater population here is extremely small. But rumor
has it that the mayor's son is a skater and had
something to do with the decision in building a park
of this scale. So, people like me are stoked on that!
This is a world-class pool they are building. Once
this thing is finished I'm pretty sure people will
come from all over to skate it.

I'll send some pics as soon as they are done pouring
the thing. There is one little section that hasn't
been poured yet. I think the ETA on the opening of the
park is around early March or so.

Just a heads up. It will definitely be worth going out
of your way to no where Mississippi to check this park
out.

The pictures make this park look great and it's not bad. There are a few spots that need to repaired around the coping. I don't know if it was bad workmanship or what. The street area has a weird kink in the main quarter. I guess you could get used to it if this was the park you skated all the time. It wasn't "unfun" just made that element less fun

street part is dope. the tranny is alright could use more quater pipes and there's no way that this pool is better then most pools in so cal when pool riding came from California, even if it's better they still don'thave the skateparks that we do! Fuck your skateparks they suck
