WhaT iT is: outdoor / concrete / The park has a 3' mini bowl that spines into an 8' super long quarter and eventually curves into an open pool corner with a hip into another quarter pipe. On the upper deck there are adjustable rails, flat manny pads, tilt pads and some low angle flat banks. In the open pit of the main area are ledges, rails, funboxes and big flat banks with quarter pipes inset. The concrete is fairly smooth and gets an 8 out of 10 for quality and crack size. The coping is all steel and is in good shape for a public access park. There are so many lines in this park that a single visit doesn't do it justice!

LocaTed: 8101 Kidston Rd. Coldstream, about ten minutes south of Vernon on the lake. This park is remarkably big and good for a smallish town. With stadium lights that stay on until 11pm the park has a dedicated and friendly posse of locals who rip. You will see the full cross section of skate culture here from tech wizards to old boys ripping on longboards all of which are approachable for local info.
