Found an abandoned 70's skatepark in Massachusettes, check this out.

I was just browsing online at 70's and 80's skateparks and apparently this one is intact somewhere in Massachusettes, this would make a pretty sweet riding area if it were cleaned up. Has anyone been to this abandoned skate park in person?

I just find stuff like this very interesting since there seems to be a few more 70's skateparks still intact. does anyone else know of any other abandoned 70's skateparks that are still intact?

Re: Found an abandoned 70's skatepark in Massachusettes, check this out.

i'm not sure where the exact location is is in ma, from what i've read it's in the new england area hidden by some bike trails. heres the original link with the images from google http://www.skateboard-city.com/messageb … 6&t=237097

I also just found some pictures of another abandoned 70's skatepark thats in maryland called cascade, all I could find is that it's somewhere in the woodlong/catonsville area. i'm not sure where exactly otherwise i'd check it out in person, it looks to be still partially burried.

I have no idea if it's for sale, I don't live anywhere near Massachusettes. I also have not been able to find anymore info about it :| I would like to locate the abandoned cascade skatepark in maryland though and ride it.

Ghetto bowl Tampa Florida. Idk if it's been demo'd yet or ever will. But it's amazing especially since they destroyed the pjs that was located next to it

I like seeing pictures of old abandoned places. I like to wonder what its history.
