New Aberdeen Indoor park

Photos are circulating from the Transition Extreme website depicting a brand new indoor wooden skatepark being built in Aberdeen.

The Transition Extreme skatepark is set on the old site of some disused tennis courts at Queen’s Links, next door to the Patio Hotel and near to the Beach Ballroom and Leisure Centre.

When the derelict skatepark of yesteryear left abandoned due to legal and funding problems, approval for the new site was given and building got underway in March 2006.

As you can see by the pictures (c/o Alex Irvine), the facility is massive, boasts a roof and walls which will shelter the facilities from the often harsh Scottish climate and the ramps look like the real deal. Shredding is predicted to start as soon as the climbing walls (another area of the Transition Extreme project) are installed.
