Firecracker Banks

Blinky from Assembly by Will Smith (2021)

Steep banks made of overset bricks which feels similar to firecrackering stairs when popped onto. Kind of like Max Palmer’s fountain but at a 45 degree angle.

The banks can be ridden up to varying degrees of success. There’s also “channel” and hip one one end end and a smooth bike lane which is good for flatground and works as a ride-in manny pad.

Bust: Never (see below).

Etiquette: Skate here after 5pm on weekdays and anytime on weekends. Despite being outside of the Leeds Combined Court, this spot is never a bust if skated outside of its opening hours.

Restrooms: Trinity Leeds is a five minute walk away.

Shops: Tesco on the other side of Park Square.
