Skateboard Park in Heidelberg

Just a quick post since I usually sit on them too long and they end up never getting posted…

Heidelberg has a really great skate park.

It is:

  • under a bridge, so you can skate in the rain.
  • right on the river, so you are right in the middle of a beautiful area.
  • made completely of concrete, which makes for a really smooth ride.
  • lit up at night, so you can skate when it is dark.
  • covered with cool graffiti.
  • free.

Skateboarding has always been a great release for me. It is the closest thing to a Buddhist Enlightenment that I think I will ever have. Here are some pictures of the park and a quick video of me skating:

    1. Hey Pedro,

      The bridge is the Ernst-Walz-Brücke that goes between the University and the Weststadt. The skatepark is under the North end of the bridge – you will see lots of graffiti on the walls so you won’t miss it. Here it is on a map: http://goo.gl/TYE62Q
