Pretty self-explanatory. Try to be as specific for the location as possible, maybe even rate the park, or explain what's there. Also, try to list only the parks you've been to, and what costs were associated.

NUMBER THEM SO WE CAN KEEP TRACK AND SEE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE POSTED FIRST (please).


1) (free/outdoor) Parc Gilbert Garneau --- Rue Pointe Gatineau, Gatineau - 1/10

This place is bunk and shouldn't really be classified as a skate park. It's basically two ashphalt circles with banks on two sides (nothing that you can make a line on), with a small 1' kicker ramp, a bump ramp thing, and a small quarter pipe. Sooo bad...but the ramps are in good condition with smooth transitions.

2) (free/outdoor) Parc de la Colline --- Boulevard Labrosse, Gatineau - 3/10

Another bunk park in Gatineau, this one has a little more to offer. Basically, you've got two low rails on one side, with a pyramid w/rail, and concrete block with metal edges. A quarter pipe there has the worst transition unless you rock big wheels. I'm useless here.

3) (free/outdoor) Orleans Skatepark, Youville drive off Jean D'arc, Orleans --- 7/10

I like this park a lot, but it definitely has a temporary park feel to it. Everything is in great condition, with smooth transitions, for pros or people that suck to get better. There's 6 quarter pipes (one with transition possibilities), several ride in ramps of different height/skill, a mini-ramp, a concrete pyramid with grind box, a maconite pyramid with a railing on one side, several benches, a wall-ride barrier, grind box, and concrete double curb thing.

theres the gloucester skate park. it has like a bank, a big a small quarter, a pyramid, a four or five set, a manual pad and a small ledge or soapbox or w/e, older park, all concrete so some of the ledges are a bit rounded.. and on the banks and ledges theres like a metalo thing and its kinda lame when you roll up.. its loacated right near the wave pool, gloucester high school, the bmx park all that jazz..

i remember going to come park near like blackburn i think? it was right near a rink and basketball court and park and shit, it was just like the gloucester park but i dunno how to explain where it is cuz i only went there once while ago. it was kinda near greens creek i think.. and then theres that other park where theres like a park in a bowl. same think i only went there once and it was whack, theres also uplands(near the airport) a bunch of small metal ramps... i duinno if its still up tho..

**also if anybody has or know of anyone with mini ramps, and is down for a session.. lemme know..

4) (5$ (or 100$ to rent)/indoor) ) En Equilibre --- 140 Boulevard Greber, Gatineau QC - 8/10

This indoor park is pretty sweet. You can check it out here --> http://enequilibre.com/blog/pages/park.html

And you can check out the EQ team skating it up here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaBl0wFaOqw


I forgot to say that you need pads and a helmet. You can rent them for a minimum amount of cash, or you can bring your own.

I made a panorama of Legacy last weekend. I have a high-res version if anyone wants to take a closer look.

There used to be an indoor skatepark on Industrial Drive that kicked ass. It was all wooden ramps. A couple bowls, some big medium and small half pipes... Lots of rails... I think it was $5 to get in, something like that. I believe it was called Skate City but I could be just making that up. I don't think it's there anymore.

Tonight I skated three parks in Hull. The first, Ruisseau, sucked; Hautes Plaines was alright, but lacking still. The one on St-Raymond was basically the same as Hautes Plaines. Last night I verified that there is no Monpetit skatepark and there's no park at Rene Levesque either. So disapointing.

So I'm guessing that Jean D'arc and Legacy are my only half-pipe/mini-ramp options? Damn they're far.

thats closed down after they had to leave the building. it re opened again near st.laurent but it closed down cause i think they ran out of money. i think some of their ramps are at mcnabb.
