Skateparks in Busan?
Printer-friendly version

I have heard rumors from my students and a friend that lives in Seoul about a skatepark in Busan that is located underneath a bridge (or under some kind of cover) near (rumors) Marine City, or possible Gwangan Bridge. Does anyone know about this park? I've tried to find it or get more information - but I can't ... I wonder if it's real.

Does anyone know about this skatepark?

Also - where are some great skate spots in Busan? 

I know about Samlock park - I haven't been there yet cause it's about an hour away from me. Also - I read online somewhere that the ground at samlock skatepark is rubberized ... Which is just about the worst thing for skating. I admit - that rumor has kept me away - can anyone tell me if that is true?

I don't think Sam-nak Park's skatepark is rubberized but I will check the next time I go there.  That will probably be during the Chuseok break.  Perhaps someone else will comment before then.

** 삼락공원 ** It's on the other side of the water from the airport. Park at P8. Two half pipes and more. Lots of kids, but they will move. Njoi.

All good on the late reply - ha, funny enough, I ended up going skating around Centum with my buddy the night I posted this and ended up falling a breaking a vertibrae in my back. It wasn't that bad - but I was out of commission for a solid month.

Maybe I'll be ready to SB again in the winter. lol - good times.

Both Mekdo and Samrak skate parks were demolished by the city last weekend. The city web site states that they were leveled as they were old and no longer safe. They won't be rebuilt. Sad.
