Projekts Skatepark in Manchester is a pretty cool place. It seems like a real hub of the community, providing a decent covered facility, under a main road.
There are two sections of the park – a smaller wooden area and a larger concrete plaza. It's been there a few years now, originally just as the smaller wooden side. The concrete section is really nice, with some good rails, interesting ledges (not your standard blocks) and a few good banks and quarters too. The wooden side has a few more quarters (with fence wallride options), a mini, a flatbank hip and some ledges.
"Projekts MCR is based at the skatepark under the Mancunian Way flyover, on the edge of Manchester city centre. It's an awesome piece of urban architecture that's worth visiting even if you can't use the ramps.
We would love to see you down here. So feel free to pop by and say hello."
