    Default Mile end skatepark(london)

    Below are the drawings for mile end skatepark.(london)
    They don't give to much of an indication to what's actually gona be there(unless your fairly good with de-cyphering this kind of stuff)BUT it's a start.

    They have already excavated and laid parts of the concrete. There is going to be a mini youth club attached to the park and a sizeable covered arch with all weather/spotlighted indoor facility planned for later stage.

    It is situated in mile end park right next to the go-kart track so.... if skating aint your cup of meat ya can tune some rubber up a stones throw away.
    This park is 2min skate from mile end tube station (central line) so will be easy reach for a lot of people.

    I'm just trying to find out dates for opening but is planned for the first week of march, we think.(depending on snow fall etc).

    Pretty sure Mark Churchill done the final design on it so that's an idea of what's gona be there.

    the park is a joke.theres a 3 foot bowl and a 2 foot bowl,they would both fit into the ground floor of your house.an absolute insult.who ever built it needs to seriously find another job.

    Oohh.... What a shame John. Guess i won't be seeing you there. Don't fret
    though buddy, i will make sure to keep you posted on how sub-standard it's going to be. I mean ,if it can fit into the ground floor or your mums house it must be a bag of shit. Whats Churchill thinking?. 3 letters for ya.

    I think the point being made is that after all the talk about the park over the last 10 years,to see it in person is underwhelming.The main bowl looks to be kidney shaped and is very small,probably about 1.5 times the size of the bowl at Finsbury park.There is also what looks like a circular bowl that has a diameter of about 2m.Seems to be a lot of flat,although the site is not that big.
    Seeing the plans would help to visualise what is being built,but it looks as though some serious compromises have been made.
