Skate Boarding in Skatepark Grünanger, Graz, Styria Austria
In Graz, a very popular sport especially among young ages is skate boarding. Skateboarders are literally everywhere in the city, riding with their wheels anything that can be rolled. Roads, stairs, parks, skate-parks, anywhere! Skate-park Grünanger is one very popular and brand new skate-park, which opened its gates only in 2011.
It is a concrete park for everyone, experienced or not. This was a 5 year project of an architecture firm and it looks really cool! In the park, you will find a lot of different banks, a Half Bowl, half-pipe, landings and quarters. Particularly the middle part has many ways with hips, ledges, rails and London Gap. The walls are laid out like in a stadium. All the parks features are handmade. It is a skate-park that you should definitely visit!
