Transition Extreme Skatepark
Transition Extreme Skatepark or TX, as it’s known by the locals, is Aberdeen’s very own plywood paradise, providing the North East with an unbeatable space for skateboarding, BMXing and inline skating.
Built in 2007 the park's design was the brainchild of local skateboarder and skatepark builder Andy Dobson who, alongside Dave Partridge from Carve Skatepark Design and with the input of local skaters and BMXers has created a world class, challenging layout based on the flow of outdoor concrete parks.
But now!! With careful consideration of the needs and wants of the valued skaters, BMXers and inliners and a generous sum of £120,000 funding from Aberdeen Forward we are thrilled to announce a brand new design coming to you in March 2015! With a six week closure from mid-January until March it gives us the opportunity to bring the North East of Scotland an ambitious state of the art revamped Skatepark.
Transition Extreme have been collaborating with Scottish ramp builders Vision Ramps to bring this unique new design to the North East community. The new design will retain a number of much loved elements and maintain the characteristic flow of the park while incorporating more street style obstacles. It will allow TX to offer more opportunities to the community and expand our social outreach programmes in ‘assisting young people make positive life transitions through sport and creativity’.
The new Skatepark will offer something for everyone; beginner, intermediates and experienced riders in all disciplines. Check out our coaching and pricing offers here (make this a link). Transition Extreme will continue to cater for birthday parties in the Skatepark, giving a unique and exciting experience unmatched in the area.
As TX grows and develops we strive to continue running on a skater based philosophy, giving you a relaxed and friendly environment. We also persist in providing the skateboarders, BMXers and Inline skaters of the North East with the facilities they deserve.
We could not have achieved this without the commitment and passion from our stakeholders, sponsors and dedicated participants, thank you. Be sure to come and check out our sneak previews of park progress in the hub in the foyer and across social media. Stay tuned for competitions where you could win your own design on a helmet or the opportunity to be one of the first to ride the new park.
