SKATERS have been flocking to the brand new skate park at Duck Lane in Kinson. Built by leading local skatepark designers Maverick, as part of a new Mansell Homes housing development in Kinson put together by Bournemouth Council.

Duck Lane is a breathtakingly designed combi-bowl and is a skaters paradise. Maverick's Russ Holbert explains: “The design has a retro feel with endless, flowing lines. At the top end, the facility features a micro clover bowl with a superfun, triple 8 pumpline. The clover bowl opens out into a unconventional snake run with offset hips and links up with a large bowled mini ramp. The walls of the mini ramp and snake run have been designed to direct riders straight down into the pool which is 9ft deep and features two monster hips. We are so stoked on this project and just so happy to have been a part of it. Hats off to all involved!”

Opened just in time for the summer months and sure to be a very popular free attraction over the holidays.

“It has tons of lines, it's progressive and accessible - yet also really gnarly, fast and above all, loads of fun,” added Maverick's Ian Jennings.

Duck Lane skatepark can be found just off the Ringwood Rd on Holloway Avenue, Kinson.
