* Rating: "Very Nice" - Team Effigy

"The new skate park [Aug '02] in Ames, Iowa."

"Morning is the best time to skate here. Around 3-5 PM the park starts filling up and is full till dusk... no lighting as of now."

"Features include medium-sized pyramid w/ rail, variety of quarter pipes, large set of four, double set of four, set of nine w/ rail, set of four w/ rail, and a variety of banks and walls. Very nice."

Directions: Located at Brookside Park in Ames... take highway 30 and exit Duff Ave heading north. Continue north past S 3rd St to Lincoln Way, where you'll make a left [west] on Lincoln. Heading west on Lincoln, travel for a few blocks, cross Grand, then make a right [north] on Hazel. The streets will start going "up" as you travel north, and you'll get to N 6th St. Look for Brookside Park - it's supposed to be right there!

^ Note the "ramp"
section on either
side of the stairs...
good idea! Stairs are
cool and all, but they
kill flow. Those
ramps help. Also note
the fun box in the
