Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington, Michigan, United States

Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington, Michigan, United States
View from the shallow to the deep. Shallow section is about 3.5 - 4 foot tall and goes just about to vert. Very tight and steep, almost like skating a pool. - Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington MI. - Photo by Eric Kuhn

A sense of scale of the shallow end. Actually the most fun I had at this park was trying to skate the shallow section- it was so tight that I could barely get up towards the coping - it was a serious challenge. Probably not what they were aiming for though. - Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington MI. - Photo by Eric Kuhn

I asked some of the locals if anyone had been able to skate this ledge- they just kinda laughed. - Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington MI. - Photo by Eric Kuhn

View of the deep end of the bowl. Not really huge, about 10 feet. But the transitions were uneven and there are some serious lumps in the walls, makes it really sketchy. Didn't skate the deep end much - it kinda freaked me out because I could never tell what the next wall was going to be like. - Ludington Skate Plaza - Ludington MI. - Photo by Eric Kuhn

Well, It looks like a functional skatepark (from a distance). Built by the company that helped pour the flat sections of the Grand Haven Park (apparently the convinced the city of Ludington that they could do a whole park by themselves- they were wrong). This park is something you might have seen built ten years ago (and not in a good way). It reminds me a lot of the park at 31st Street in Chicago, poorly laid out, bad transitions, some elements are virtually un-skatable and the finish/coping-set is inconsistent.

A note to other communities- please don't spend your money with local contractors that say that they can build a skatepark! Hire a skatepark design/build company!

I am planning on petitioning the city of muskegon to renovate seyfert's skatepark into a proper skate plaza. I haven't been to the Ludington park in person, but judging by these pic's it look's like it was designed by someone who doesn't skate. I do applaud the city for building it though.

This park has some cool features like some mellow quarter pipes, some nice rails and ledges but honestly is really poorly designed. The bowl is pretty much worthless and there is a hubba ledge there that is so high you couldn't hit no matter what your were riding. Its not worth skating unless you are in the area and have some time to kill which is ... read more »
