Review By: Taylor P

Description:
Kirkstone park is a combination of bowl and street with small pyramids thrown in for good measure. This makes it a good park for various skill levels. The bowl area is made up of a 9 quarter that leads into a seven and a roll in. This is separated by a six foot to four foot spine leading into the shallow part of the bowl. This area is wide open surrounded by four foot quarters and centered around a cement wave.

The street features include eight rails and seven ledges of varying difficulty. Kirkstone also features a jersey barrier, small pyramid and four wedge hips. All in all Kirkstone is a great place to kill an afternoon. I give it 4 bikes out of five.

Directions:
By Car; hit the highway traveling west. Cross second narrows take the third exit (this is right after you cross an orange bridge and before that huge hill to upper Lynn valley) Once you've left the highway stay on Mountain Highway for three stop lights, turn left on Kirkstone road, drive for about 200m or until you see the park on your right.

By Bus; get to Phibbs exchange, catch bus number 210 Upper Lynn valley, ride bus for about 10 minuets exiting at Kirkstone Road, cross the street and ride until you see the park on your left (about 200m)

Yeah it's fun. Sorry I don't have any good photos. I took some once but they looked like crap.

Check the park review for a pic of Ben Boyco boosting:

Kirkstone is rarely busy. Also, the street section is fairly seperated from the bowl, so if the bowl is busy, the street is quiet.

That's not how I remember my park It's a madhouse. It's always full of little kids snaking people (like tot's on scooter's n shit) and the parents are always there watching them do it and get mad with YOU when their kid runs into ya. I've had my ankle rolled because some dummy kid can't yell bored and lots of other close encounters that almost made me shit myself.

It is a very nice park just lots of traffic.
