    todays park is Inala, i used to go there a bit cause it's just down the road from my sisters place..

    basically it's for the old school bowl shredders and some of you guys would love it, but i never really got into bowls and vert.

    anyway it has two bowls one mini and one over vert with a craddle/loop thing.. a big 3 block stairs with a tall rail, a few banks a hip and thats about it..also has a bank to ledge thing that i want to hit next time i go..

    bring a broom and dustpan with you as their is a lot of broken glass/condoms/needles and anything you can expect left there at any time as it is in a rough kind of area apparently..

    some pics..







    enjoy..

    Best thread ever for someone living in Brisbane. I'm skating now more than ever and will be keen to find new spots to my liking soon enough. Your photo's are giving me a headstart on that. I've never made the short trip to Capalaba but the lights & 10pm close really appeal to me. Thanks for that one bigtime. I might cruise up after dinner during the week.

    I feel truly blessed to have Coops as my local. It been teaching this old dude how to skate a bit of street. Still awaiting news on the extension though. Coorparoo x2. Yeah, I want some of that. Apparently a miniramp extension too.

    Inala is the South Central LA of Brisbane. I'm surprised there wasn't a family living in the fullpipe. Fun looking park though.

    theres 3 free parks around me. and one that costs 10 bucks for 4 hours.
    the closest one sucks ass with only 3 grind boxes and a 2 foot ledge.
    there is one about 15 miles away and its a great park but its hard to get there.
    then there is one about 70 miles away which really sucks and those are the closest parks.
    i wish i was as lucky as you guys. pennsylvania blows for parks.

    i only moved to Brisbane six months ago and theres just parks everywhere it's crazy..

    I must say Acacia Ridge looks like a place I could happily waste a good morning to as well. It's not really that far if you head out along Ipswich Road.
