Description of Tuckingmill Skatepark – A Bowl-Lovers Haven
Tucked away in the beautiful Tuckingmill Valley Park in Cornwall, lies the Tuckingmill Skatepark, a haven for skateboarders of all abilities. This outdoor skatepark consists of two large concrete bowls, concrete steps and banks, metal rails and several small metal ramps on a tarmac grounding, offering a range of skating opportunities for everyone.
The first bowl is a long and thin rectangular shape with a flat bottom, while the second bowl is a figure 8 shape with a rounded bottom. The shallower first bowl has a key hole roll in on one side and can double as a mini ramp, with coping around the outside. Meanwhile, the second bowl is a lot tighter and whippier than the first, providing ample opportunities for pumping and endless lines.
In addition to the two bowls, the rest of the obstacles are located around the edges, including a couple of rails, a spine and a funbox. At the end of the run, there is a small stair set that can be used for some extra fun. A curved bank around the edge also features an interesting bank to rock feature.
While the street section is basic, the bowls here are the main attraction. The shallower bowl is an ideal spot for beginners, while the figure 8 bowl is more suitable for intermediate skaters. This means that there is something for skaters of all abilities. And with no cost to skate and opening times subject to availability, Tuckingmill Skatepark is a perfect local spot to hone your bowl skills.
Overall, Tuckingmill Skatepark is a bowl-lovers paradise, offering a range of skating opportunities for everyone. So, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced skateboarder, this is definitely a skatepark to check out. Come and experience the thrill of skating in the beautiful surroundings of Tuckingmill Valley Park.

Last week I went with my best friends to Tuckingmill skatepark and let me tell you, it was a great time! The park is made up of two large concrete bowls, concrete steps and banks, metal rails and several small metal ramps on a tarmac grounding. It’s a great place to test your skating skills and try out some new tricks.
The first bowl is a more simple long and thin rectangular shape with a flat bottom. It is shallower with a key hole roll in on one side and can double as a mini ramp as it has coping around the outside. The second bowl is a figure 8 shape with a rounded bottom and is a lot tighter and whippier than the first bowl. There is a lot more pumping opportunities in this bowl and you could skate endless lines in here. The second bowl was definitely our favorite and we spent most of our time in there.
Around the edges of these bowls are the rest of the obstacles in this skatepark which are made up of a couple of rails, a spine and a funbox. At the end of this run is also a small stair set and there is also a curved bank around the edge with an interesting bank to rock feature. We really enjoyed trying out all the different obstacles and seeing what we could do on them.
This is a nice local park and the bowls here are the main attraction as the street section is very basic. The bowls are good as the shallower one is more suited to beginners and the figure 8 is more for the intermediate skaters meaning that there is something for skaters of all abilities. We saw a lot of different skill levels at the park and everyone seemed to be having a great time.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Tuckingmill skatepark to anyone who loves skating or wants to try it out. The park is well-maintained and has plenty of different obstacles to try out. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and have some fun on your board.
