Monster City Park Grand Reopening Party – January 11th, 11am
For the second year in a row, Cannonsburg has created the best urban-influenced terrain park in the midwest. This year, we’ve added the biggest, baddest features ever seen at Cannonsburg including a 20ft x 40ft wallride and a larger-than-life culvert. The features and park were designed with your favorite street spots in mind and have some of the best flow around.

Park Plans 2014

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about our terrain parks and when they’re going to open. For those of you who are new or have questions about our terrain parks, check out the full detail on our website, here.

Here’s some facts and figures for you:

  • Cannonsburg has around (at least) 85 park features.
  • All of our park features are built in-house by our fabricators.
  • We have 7 parks, made for all ages and skill levels.
  • Our smallest feature is about 2 in. high, and our biggest feature is 20 ft. high.
  • Cannonsburg adds an average of 20 new features every season.
  • Cannonsburg was voted #2 Best Park in the Midwest by Transworld Snowboarding
  • Every park has a different goal and feel, using terrain in different ways

Here are some updates on the status of our parks as of January 1st, 2014.

Monster City Park: Opening January 11th, 2014 at 11am. Be here for the huge party we’ll be throwing, complete with spot prizing, the Monster Army Team (MAT), and of course the biggest and baddest urban terrain park in the Midwest.

Cannon Park: The jumpline is up! Situated on the double, we’ve had issues in the past with building a jumpline on a hill with a lot of flat spots. After a lot of designing and calculating by our park team, we figured out a perfect equation. The jumpline is set up with some speed hits at the top, and then two poppy jumps. The last jump has two lips, so pick your pop! The Cannon Park also has the new 686 up-box and up-rail.
