Neutaconkanut Skatepark, Providence, RI: an Appreciation

Me at Gone Skating:

Let’s get a few things out of the way first. This park is way too small to be the only park in a city the size of Providence. It is a neighborhood park trying to do the job of a regional one, plopped in an area where more kids have bikes than skateboards. I skate it regularly, but don’t even think of going there in the afternoon, even when school is in session.

Also, there is no tranny over 4′, and Sam Batterson put the whole thing together at under $18 a square foot. Cheap!

Having said that, I love skating this place in the morning, the earlier the better.
