Laidley Skate Park
NEAR ME SHARE
The stop before Gatton on the trip out west from Brisbane is always this little tiny town, but the park there is very interesting and well worth the travel time off the main highway. This place is a "one street town" and the park is behind the football field, just after the shops and pub. The side street after the playing field is the closest access to the park, as there is no parking (or toilets) right beside it.
There is a mini ramp, a few grind rails and some other interesting and unique concrete things besides the usual banks and ramps. The little bitumen bank hip is surprisingly good for flips, and everything runs well together, bank facing box, quarter opposite the big bank and diagonals using the grind rails. The metal mini is very smooth, nicely big enough without being too high and quite wide enough to do anything across.
Bring a broom as this place seems to not be used that much and watch out for magpies in the spring as they have nests in the trees around the park.
