New concrete skatepark in Plauen, Germany

Plauen skatepark opening

Germany is really moving forward at a fast pace in the last few years with concrete parks. Back when I came over from the States in 1985 (yes children, I am an old fart but I skate better than ever before!) no one I knew had skated concrete other than on a normal street. It seems that the parks are popping up all over the place now.

Situated in Germany’s east, Plauen is close to Chemnitz and Leipzig. The park will have a bowl and a complete skate plaza. Just the construction pictures make me want to pack my bags and get down there. I’ll be in Stuttgart that weekend, darn!
