These days are ours

For a good few years now 2 of the best spots around the coast have been the kids play parks in Whitley Bay and North Shields, known locally as 'Black Park' and 'Blue Park' respectively (although Blue Park is now green). For some reason now all the other parks in the area are all getting a revamp (probably the last one for a while before the 'Cameron Cuts'!) and all have new spots in them to ride. I'm planning a "Park" edit soon with only footage from the kids parks in the area of which there are now about 6 with hips, grinds and other weird obstacles. Here are some photos from yesterday from Blue Park and the park on Links Avenue and a bit of street in Monkseaton.

Above x2: the park on Links Avenue, Cullercoats with a new hip/jumpbox thing and a weird balance beam set up that is good for launching out and grinding across..

The infamous Robert Cairns of Westmoor was in town repping the colour green
