The Johnson Skatepark has been around for 9 years now and is bigger and better than ever. On the set of a former trailer park loop, the land was donated by Tim Harvey, a local developer after the trailer park flooded in 1999.

So the set up of the park is a 600 foot long 16 foot wide L. Many people have been involved in building ramps in the past 10 years. Most notably Greg Fatigate, Isaac Graham, Josh Lemieux, Cody Hill, Howard Romero and Richie Bowen.

The park features mostly transition, but we've dedicated a little over a 3rd of the space to developing a street area. Also located at the park is one of the finest sets of dirt jumps in the state for all you biker dudes. We've also got a grill, a graff wall, running water, boards and parts for sale, and plenty of space for the kids and dogs to run around.

Ramps include:

6' quarter with an 18" extension, all pool coped.

double camel hump

jersey barrier quarter

16' wide spined mini with hips connecting each half to the "street" course

bi level table top with hubbas, a wall ride, and a flat ledge with a wallie on one side and tranny on the other

china bank with buttery landscaping brick coping

3 foot spine with a taco bell roller

19' wide "BIG O" replica quarter with a 3 foot doorway and flat concrete coping

pole jam

16' wide pyramid hip

other various boxes, ledges, manual pads etc.

All things considered, the vibe, the location, and the ramps, it's the best skate park in the state, and the potential is nowhere close to being reached. The park is substance free; no drinking and no cigarettes, so bring the kids down.

Come down, shred the mini, bbq, spray some paint, and enjoy the beautiful Vermont scenery anytime.

So there is a huge difference now in what Johnson once was, to what it is now. Out of all parks in vermont I think Johnson is the most unique one due to how many people have been involved with the building and up keep, and how many times it has changed (features taken out and features added). These picture here are pretty old and a majority of these features don't even exist anymore. Big shout out to Richard Bowen for keeping it fresh the last several years and finally getting some concrete poured this past year. As far as variety here, the features here out pretty out of this world and influence you to skate like you normally wouldn't. If you stick a trick here on anything its going to feel way gnarlier than it would on a perfectly crafted concrete park. This is because the main riding surface is pavement (asphalt) and the ramps are generally made from recycled materials and have that DIY style of perfection. Super fun place to skate!
