Sheldon Park in Belfast Christchurch is getting a new bowl with construction well underway. I don’t know much about the park other than its built by the same crew as Greymouth & Reefton, so you know the build quality will be good and by looking at the photos above should be a bit of fun.

Here’s a look at the new Auckland Skateparks going in the Waterview connection area. The top park is going to be located at Waterbank Crescent & the bottom park will be at Valonia Street. Both parks will be completed sometime around mid 2016 along with the BMX park.
For the last couple of years Auckland City has had a massive roading project going on, the Waterview Connection, which is a motorway tunnel connecting the north west motorway to the south west motorway. Its a huge project and apparently is the biggest roading tunnel in the southern hemisphere. In conjunction with building the tunnel the Auckland City council has also decided to build two new skateparks at either end,
Forrest Hill Skatepark in Auckland has recently had a little bit of an upgrade. At the top end of the park it now features a small mini which leads into hip / small vert wall, and at the bottom end of the park there’s a 6-7 foot stand alone 1/4. The transitions seem to be done by hand so the mini is a little funky to ride,
Looks like Orewa’s finally getting it’s new Skatepark which I am sure the locals will be stoked about. Its pretty small & a little plaza focused, but thats cool, still looks like a lot of fun. Lets just hope they keep the lights out there as Orewa has always been a good little winter evening spot.

The new Washington reserve extension in Christchurch is now completed and open to the public.. and is quite possible the biggest on the NZ map. Sam Skinner who has recently moved back to Christchurch sent through a bunch of photos he snapped of the locals shredding the new goods.

Looks like the 2013 EDH Local Assault Jam has been cancelled for 2013, which is a big bummer as it was definitely one of the countries raddest of rad jams. But.. the cool thing is the Washington Reserve skatepark will be undergoing a million dollar plus upgrade over the next year which will set it to be one of the biggest parks in NZ.

Looks like the Albany Clover Bowl in Auckland might be getting an upgrade this year… a pool style bowl and plaza.
