    Fleckney in leicester is the first one that comes to mind. There's a sick bowl in Coventry near Ride skateshop, it's pretty fun but it's in the ghetto and it's a pre-fab jobby.

    I'm curious as to how many sick parks with awesome bowls are in the west midlands - need to get some more trips on to those kind of parks!

    Wednesfield plaza - but no bowl

    There's Crewe plaza - the bowl was fucked but apparently has been repaired I read on here.

    Don't really know of many other concrete ones. I'm sure there are some sick plans for a park in West Brom but I don't know when that's due. Also plans for Lichfield I think.

    Wednesfield is sick, crewe is literslly just up the road but it looks shit and apparently the bowl is still fucked.

    Ive not been living on the west side for long and i need to get to other parks, its expensive getting over to wakefield/leeds etc so i need some decent places to go.

    Lichfield parks is still going to take a while to be made,largely due to the concerns of Samual Johnson who believes the noise will distract his concentration on writting a new dictionary, and Erasmus Darwin's Hypothesis that it may shatter one of the Cathedrals spires.
    however if you are lucky enough to venture across to these parts Shenstone is well worth checking out... But maybe not.
    I couldn't find any pictures, but i did stumble across this, which manages to show views of the whole park.

    In their infinite wisdom, Birmingham Council built a flight of stairs into the hip of the KH bowl due to finding a poor dead fox in the bottom who couldn't get out. NO JOKE. It's been completely ruined. No lines in it any more.

    Was that at King's Heath? I read about that, didn't realise it was King's Heath, the photo from the news article looked different to the photo I've seen of KH.

    Don't understand why someone couldn't have picked the fox up and climbed out with it (pretty sure the fox wasn't dead ) - or they could have made the stairs into some kind of bowl feature.
