Skateparks: Harrison City Skatepark
Location: Harrison, AR

If you're a fan of doing one trick and stopping immediately after, this is the place for you. Harrison, located deep in the hills of North-Central Arkansas, is better known for being the home of the Grand Wizard of the KKK. So honestly, you wouldn't think, "I bet there's a skatepark there". Well think again. With The Board Room, local skateshop, less than a block away, skaters won't need to stress if they snap their board in frustration while skating this mediocre skatepark.

Hardcore Shotcrete Skateparks took a stab at this one and to this writer, came up short compared to their other work. This poor attempt at a skate plaza left Harrison, Arkansas with a very minimal skatepark. I would like to commend them on there finish work, the concrete is very smooth, but someone was slacking on their design work here. I would explain the design as a larger plaza that was compressed in every direction. No flow, One push to every obstacle with a short landing, and odd ledge angles that makes one scratch one's head. Poorly designed and not made to challenge an actual skater. The 3 foot long rail in the photo below should say it all...
