London’s bowl skaters will be stoked to know that the new Freestyle built bowl in Clissold Park in Hackney will be officially open to the public and ready to skate from this Thursday 21st April 2011. The bowl has been sessioned by friends of ours who say that the hips naturally line up in front of you and generally feels great. Other additional goodness includes decent seating and mounded hills that are perfect for lazing about in and watching sessions.
The Freestyle team have grafted hard to have this one up and running for you for Easter Weekend so get down there this week and have a ride on what looks likely to be a popular choice for many this summer. Big shouts to John Flood, Steve Crawford and the lads there for all their hard work on this one.
The locals of Hackney and surrounding areas of London will will have a brand new skatepark on their doorsteps very soon. The park designed and built by Freestyle Skateparks is scheduled to be opened in Clissold Park, Hackney in February 2011 and looks like it’s going to be something quite special.
John Flood from Freestyle sent us these photos of the ongoing build this morning and said…”When you’re standing in the bowl it looks great. We used a different transition which, after looking at the first pour of concrete looks perfect! This bowl has big cupping transition for the hips, but tightening up at the top, the lines will work perfectly once it’s all completed.”
The park apparently be fitted with a table tennis table next to it – start dreaming of dry, warm weather and get hyped on London receiving another bowl finally.
