Framlingham Skatepark has been on my hitlist for list blog since the beginning. A friend of mine has been posting short clips of this skatepark and I’ve been itching to give it a skate.
I knew the skatepark was on the Pageant field so headed for Framlingham Castle, the logic being that sure the Pageant field would be next to the castle. I was wrong. I should have know better, I went to high school in Framlingham. The Pageant field is in fact about a third of a mile from the castle, on the road that heads out of town towards Peasenhall. I parked on a residential street and started a very soggy trudge across a playing field to the skatepark.
As is becoming predictable for these blog posts, it was too soggy to have a proper skate. But in a marked improvement since my trip to Hadleigh Skatepark there was at least a little bit of dry concrete where I could have a roll around.
I’m really impressed by Framlingham Skatepark. It has recently been renovated and some of the old metal ramps (that by all accounts had dissolved into the ground in rust) have been replaced by some really nice concrete ramps.
The highlight of the park for me is a lovely wide quarter pipe, it felt slightly higher than the other local wide quarter pipe (at Woodbridge) but I’m looking forward to spending a considerable amount of time on it once my ramp skills improve. There’s also a HUGE ramp, which is brilliant fun. In fact there are several sloping ramps that nicely lead towards other obstacles. Framlingham Skatepark is going to be brilliant for learning new tricks and boosting my confidence. Framlingham Skatepark, I salute you.
