    next park is Capalaba Skate plaza/ Redlands youth plaza..

    once again has a basketball court, skate shop across the road, taps toilets and lights as it's open at night till 10pm..

    it's one of the best parks i've been to, has a 100 metre long street course with stairs hubbas, rails, big block stairs and hand rails, plus a nice smooth bowl up the top..
    has ledges made of wood, concrete and metal take lots of wax and some haven't seen use in a while..

    if this park doesn't have something for you then i don't know what will..

    pics..

    that second park looks super fun
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    ok so next park is my local Coorparoo skate park, i love this place and it's actually the reason why i moved to this suburb..

    it has the best of both worlds a metal mini ramp, two banks one with a nice hip, a funbox with ledges and rail plus a euro gap.., a few nice manual pads/ ledges of different heights, a curved ledge and a flat bar

    one of my favourite parks ever, i have spent countless hours here, it has a drinking fountain, seats with shade to chill, and shops to get food and drinks just up the road it's also right near the train station so easy to get do if you don't have a car..


    now some pics, these arern't my pics, i go there everyday but never took any so just using these ones..

    well went to two new parks today Goodna Prefab park,and as it says in the name it is just a crappy little prefabricated metal park with no lines and nothing good except the mini ramp..

    i didn't bother taking any pics as it was pretty crap and i left after five miniutes..

    the next park was Carole Park Skatepark, it's a really small little park but alot of fun to muck around at, it has a school and a public pool just up the road..
    I really liked this place and had alot of fun here, the bench with the little launch at the end is a heap of fun to skate..

    some pics..
