Hebron Skatepark

* Outdoor: Metal / Asphalt
* $7.50 [non-local fee]
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Miniramp Heaven

"This is in Hebron, CT. It's one of the better municipal parks in the state."

"All steel surfaced, it has a great mini-ramp setup that graduates from 4 ft to 5 ft to 6.5 ft extensions. The rest of the area is a big perimeter of drop-ins to a fun box, rails, etc. The surfaces are painted and very grippy."

"They stay open 'til 8 PM - in the summertime. There are porta potties and a snack bar, too. The park is located in a regional recreation park with plenty of stuff to do for non-skaters while they're stuck waiting around."

- Bill Helene: Aug '01

Directions: Coming from Hartford, take Interstate 84 east to Interstate 384 east. Take exit 5 and turn onto Route 85 south. Follow this road to Veterans Memorial Park. The skatepark is in that park.

a "wicked" street course - lots of
flat rails to lock onto to...
