Just sending you a line to let you know about a park in Charleston, West Virginia named Focus. It is back open minus a few things. The street course is pretty much still intact. The twelve stair set was sold to ollies skatepark in Florence, Ky. along with the 7-8ft. bowl. Also the little micro miniramp is gone. New to the park is a 9ft.quarter in the street course and soon more street area ramps are in the making where the bowl was. We are in the process of building another 4ft. miniramp that will spine out into the street area. A few more little fun boxes and things are in the making. This park will definitely be a must if in the area. Skater owned and operated!! and also many pro demos and am contests. Once everthing is done. We will send new pics when its all done.

thanks, Jeffro


New park in Charleston. Its a tight, Vans style part. You need to come up and skate it, cause if you think those other WV parks are nice, you need to check this out. ACTUALLY BUILT BY SKATERS. Its got a 6ft. Mini w/ a 7 ft extension. The 6ft. spines into a 6-8ft. kidney bowl thats fast as hell. It also has a super mini thats 3ft. A twelve stair with a rail and ledges on both sides. And the street course, it has a wedge bank with a double roller for speed to get over the camel hump and to the 16ft. vert wall to get speed for the 5ft. fly box. It also has two banks with a sub box a fun box with a two ledges( one angled one straight.) and rail with a euro gap. A small pyramid. (includes snack bar and proshop.)Check the website at www.focusskatepark.com........All employees skate or ride bikes.

The parks inside has long been destroyed. Go ahead and reopen it, the rent is $3800 per month LOL. Pawnshops HQ is the place to skate these days its right outside kanawha city. Or go to ollies.

If you are coming East bound on Interstate 64, then take the Lee Street exit and that is Pennsylvania Avenue, the skatepark is in a warehouse on your right. Note: you will pass Women's and Children's Hospital (also on right).

If you are coming West bound on Interstate 64, take the Washington Street exit, get into the far left lane and go under the interstate, then get into the far right lane and go past Women's and Children's Hospital and it will be on your right in a warehouse..
