1991 Skatepark Tour - Eat Concrete, Omaha NE

 Unfortunately Colorado was the furthest western US destination for us, and although I would have loved to go further west in the early 90's, it just wasn't in the plans.   Luckily our route back to Canada involved traveling through Nebraska, where we found a fairly large skate park called EAT CONCRETE.  This place was huge, and also very popular as there were plenty of skaters here. It was really busy, but they also had enough space that it didn't feel overcrowded at all.

There were several of quarter pipes, launch ramps and some street features made it more conducive to indoor street skating compared to other parks I'd visited, so it was a nice change.

There were plenty of ramps to choose from as well which made it easy really accessible for all different experience levels.

 It was one of the only skate parks I visited where BMX was mixed in with skateboarding.  I love BMX too so it wasn't a problem for me, in fact I enjoyed watching this guy get some air.

At Eat Concrete, I sought out the best 4' mini-ramp available, and spent most of my time there.  This one was really wide just like the one at Jamaica Jim's in Denver, and it was perfect for me to practice on.

Eat Concrete had an outdoor concrete park area too, but it wasn't in the best of shape, and looked like it needed a bit of TLC.  It had rained recently, and some water had collected in the concrete bowl.  A quarter-pipe was built around this tree which was a bit unusual.

It was certainly worth the trip to Eat Concrete in Omaha, Nebraska.
