Confederation Park, Burnaby
Confederation Park is a large asphault area surrounded by chain link fence. There
is a slam wall on at the south end of the park that feeds you down onto the main
area with two pyramids the first being 1.5 feet high and maybe 5 feet long. The
second pyramid is 4 maybe 4.5 feet high and about 2 feet square on top. A fun
park if you a beginner as there are six different ledges to learn grinds on of
varying height (ranging from as low as 20cm to as high as 80cm) this includes
both flat and sloped ledges.
Confederation also has it own mini bowl, small with steep walls, probably not
the best bowl to ride in if your just starting out. This is a good place to come
to practice you tricks as you can manual around the perimeter of the park, grind
ledges, learn spins off the various lips and slopes and just hang out. There are
almost always skateboarders so you'd better be prepared to share the park.
From Downtown catch the Skytrain to Broadway Station and transfer to the Millennium
Line. Ride to Brentwood Mall Station and catch the 130 Hastings/Kootenay Loop
or the 123 Kootenay Loop. Ride the bus untill you hit Hastings (takes about 3
min). Ride your bike North (towards the mountains) from the corner of Hastings
and Willingdon for two blocks, when you see the large community center on the
right follow the large running track (its oval) around untill you see the skatepark
in the back corner.
Funbox thing with sloped ledges for either side. Small pyramid and slam wall
in the background.
Round bowl with hips and super shallow end.
