Skatespots from a nonskaters point of view

Örebro Skatepark

Skatespots Sweden Posted on Sun, September 18, 2016 20:48:41

Örebro skatepark is a one of the new larger parks bulit in Sweden. Great park. Smooth concrete. It is a nice atmosphere and lots of stuff to skate. Though I would say it is a bit off. Not close to the city center so there is not very much to see nearby.

Örebro has got a university and a castle. There is a cool feel to the city so a walk around the city is a good idea. Visit the castle.

Castle on an island. Playful sculptures.



Frysen Stockholm Skatepark

Skatespots Sweden Posted on Sun, June 19, 2016 10:50:46

This indoor skatepark is situated pretty much in downtown Stockholm. The area is part of Söder but acctually it is south of Söder on the mainland.


The surroundings are very nice and there are plenty of opportunities to take a walk, have a coffe or meal while waiting. Walk along the boardwalk by Hammarby sjö or check out the architecture of in this newbuilt district. It used to be an industrial ruff area and now it is a growing residential area.
Across the water you can visit Söder.

The skatepark has a huge vertramp, bowl and miniramp in the ramp hall and a street area. Something for everyone.



Highvalley Skatepark Stockholm

Higvalley is not in the nicest of areas but there is quite a good stretch to take a jog. But there is a radical arts center nearby. It´s a pretty cool building and it´s worth to check out.

The skatearea on the other hand is pretty amazing. Lots of different areas for all kinds of skating. Freestyle, bumps, ditch and a large poolarea. And a cafe that s open every now and then. Seems like its not quite ready or maybe it is…The plans were at first to build a much bigger park.

Cafe and lots of concrete.

Nighttime!


Pool area.Smaller and bigger.


Freestyle and bumps.


Ditch



Jönköping

A goodlooking spot. Pity it is in such a dull location, trading area, out of town. The town is located on the shores of Vättern so I guess there is a seaside boardwalk and some possibility to have a nice day at sea. But I am still not charmed.

The flatarea seems nice and there is just the kind of space to make anyone want to make a try. The bowl is super, I am told.

It is a friendly spot, everyone can have a try. Have to give the town another chance.



Åva, Täby

Skatespots Sweden Posted on Thu, August 01, 2013 10:31:33

Åva skatepark is a bit way out but it looks pretty nice.
It is big enough to have something for everyone still not too big.
The setting is not particularly nice. On one side you have the commuter train and the other way is some kind of industrial area. Though you could get some shopping done.
The Täby mall welcomes you in both Swedish and English.
Kind of different feel to this mall,hm.
A new residential area is under construction.

Guess it will be very nice.
But running is not enjoyable here. You have to run in suburbia, with a “cul-de-sac” feel.



Nacka Skatepark

Skatespots Sweden Posted on Tue, June 18, 2013 20:46:38

The location of Nacka Skatepark is boring to say the least. Beside a huge highschool outside Stockolm surrounded by big motorways and very little residenteal area.

The bowl and the streetarea is pretty cool.

There are some pros to the surroundings though. An indoor mall within walking distance and the park is actually part of a sports facility.

A football pitch with a running track, much appreciated when not used by footballers. Indoor swimmingpool and a small forest.

And when the park is empty, early mornings or offseason, the cruiser can have a ride.



Kristineberg

Kristineberg skatepark in Stockholm is my favorite at the moment. It is not so crowded and the setting is perfect. Either you bring your jogging gear an run beside the beautiful Karlberg´s canal. Perfect för 5 km run.

Bowl area is looking great.

If you rather just want to have a beer there is plenty. The neighborhood is newly built and not quite fully developed jet. It is built for the young and smart but it is OK to hangout .Enjoy the view and new cool houses. I love those balconies! And the beachwalk is great.
