Southsea Skatepark is possibly the oldest and most iconic Skatepark in the UK and celebrated their 40th birthday last year!
Southsea Skatepark is open all year round and welcome everyone from beginners to pros.
The park is operated by a charity and all their income goes to keeping the park running and improving. Donations are very gratefully received and they also welcome offers of sponsorship.
This outdoor skatepark is ideal for skateboarders, rollerbladers, scooters and BMX bikers. Southsea Skatepark is located on Southsea Common and offers a variety of skating facilities. The skatepark periodically holds contests catering for BMX, inline, scooters and skateboarding. BMX shop on site.
Southsea Skatepark reflects it’s age, mixing the legendary concrete from the 70s as one of the first skateparks in the UK , with the contemporary street/park section, which includes a state of the art vert ramp, spine mini, and a 4ft metal mini around by the cafe.
Southsea Skatepark covers a range of styles, from the snake run bowl that encourages carving and creative lines to the pool slalom run bowl that has just had a small box jump added to the top of the run. Next there's the mogul and keyhole bowl that link together and have brought so much history to the park, it’s fair to say visitors come and go and respect anything done in the keyhole bowl which is approx 16ft deep. It definitely adds that legit tag to anything you can do in it.
What was originally the banked freestyle kick turn area, has now had a state of the art 14ft high / 40ft wide vert ramp with skate lite surface added. Next to the vert (surrounding the iconic bandstand) there's a flat bank hip and pyramid grind rail that flows into a 4ft hip into the skate rink. Back in the 70s and 80s the rink was only used for roller hockey.
There is helmets, skates, skateboards and a limited number of scooters available to hire at reasonable rates. Please note that they recommend all users to wear helmets and all under 16s must do so. Hire prices are per session and include a security deposit.
