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.
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
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.
