A few years back, the town of Franklin was flooded out by some pretty heavy-duty spring rains. In the process, their skateboard park was totally destroyed. Insurance covered a replacement facility... and here it is. These look like ARC-sourced prefab steel ramps, but they are a huge improvement over the previous Rhino-built facility. Also gone is the perimeter fence, which was a nice touch: It eliminates that "prison yard" feel that most fenced-in parks have. Everything is well-built, and as far as prefab parks go, it's actually pretty damn fun. -Bud Stratford, The Solitary Life

This skatepark is located directly beside the Franklin, IN Police Department Headquarters. A few years old, it is beginning to show its age, and fall into a state of minimal disrepair. Repairs are currently underway, which means that a few of the obstacles are off-limits until the work has been completed.



The skatepark consists of quite a few street obstacles, strewn about on a very large concrete slab. Built by Rhino Ramps, the obstacles are a steel-surfaced wood core material, covered with Skatelite. The park is tightly packed; there is literally dozens of various quarterpipes, spines, flat banks, half-pyramids, hips, fly boxes, ledges, and boxes here, some of which are put together into some very interesting obstacle combinations (see pics). For what it is; that is, a small-town, budget-minded prefab park, it is not really half bad. Quite fun, actually.



The mini ramp is about 6ft. tall and approx. 8ft wide, which makes it virtually useless for anything other than straight, back-and-forth, stationary tricks.





It is a great park. There is a lot to do there. It is great for beginners but also has a lot for experienced riders. Check it out you will love it.
