Carlisle skatepark is a medium sized all concrete course that can be found in the grounds of Carlisle Castle and is set up in the usual back and forth layout.
The start and return ramps here are made up of a series of flat banks and quarter pipes that face each other with a funbox in between them with a hubba and rail and adjacent to this is a ledge. Facing one of the quarter pipes is also another quarter pipe forming a mini ramp.
Carlisle skatepark is a fairly simple set up with all of the usual obstacles found in a back and forth run. The surfaces are smooth and fast and there is a decent amount of space between the obstacles making it a good place to come and practise the basics.

The park is a five minute walk from the town centre. There are two public toilets, one in Bitts Park just a short walk over the playing field, and the other two minutes around the corner at Sainsbury’s. Sainsbury’s is the closest shop to the park at the moment as Bitts Park shop was flooded and is currently closed.
