Pioneer skatepark is a charity-operated indoor skatepark found in a warehouse in St. Albans. It is one of the longest running indoor skateparks in the UK and is fully supervised, being made up of bespoke wooden ramps on a concrete base that are set up in a back and forth arrangement.
At either end of the run are two lines of quarter pipes and flat banks facing inwards acting as start and return ramps. In between these are a series of driveways and funboxes with hubba, rails, ledges and manny pads as well as some gaps to hit as well.
This is a nice indoor park, it may not be as big as some others but it has everything you would want from a skatepark. It is available for hire and the surfaces are smooth with nicely arranged obstacles, definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.
