Went down to Grand Rapids,MI Thursday for a doctors appointment and decided to stop by the Modern park. I spent all my time in the bowl and mini. I know pads and places like this suck but its the only time i get to skate a bowl in michigan besides when im in Cali in july. Had fun tho!
50-50 around 5 ft corner

Cruisin'

Carving and setting up for the hip on the left

Concrete Paradise?!?!

I live in Michigan too but on the east side near detroit. They're building a modern sp a half an hour away from my house thats should be open any minute now BUT its not going to be half as gnar as Grand Rapids because their bowl is cement and ours will be wood  Cry

hell no.i wish.the only cement park would be traverse citys park but its not REALLY a cement park like the ones in the northwest.so theres no bowls or any real vert.google it and youll see.I go down to detroit a couple times per year cuz thats where my dad grew up so i usually sk8 downtown D but always wondered if there were any cement parks in the area.Our hotel is usually in Novi sooo...anything in the outskirts would be sick..!

Welllll...Hart plaza in Detroit is fucking sick but you already know that. As for parks near Detroit there is a nice little bowl with a snake run around it with street stuff in it in Huntington Woods in the south east corner of 11 mile and coolidge hwy. Heres some basic info with like two pics on this website http://www.skateboardpark.com/skateboardpark/viewpark.asp?ID=2867. I'd say it's worth it to check it out. Plus it's right down the street from the modern park.

Royal oak bowl is totally legit.
layers are birch which means its really fast and really grippy.
and the other bowl off of coolidge is the only concrete you'll find in the metro detroit area but can easily be ridden all day.

What your saying is true. Have you skated modern's yet? I'm more of a street cat but that love seat they put in still looks fun.
