Clitheroe skatepark was built and opened in 2006 and is an all concrete park made up of both transition and street elements that can be found in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle.
On the far side of the skatepark can be found a kidney bean skaped bowl with two different depths for each half and coping around the edges. Off the back side of the bowl is a flat bank that opens up into the main body of the skatepark, one side of which has two back to back mini ramps forming a spine between them. The other side is the start of the street section and features a driveway with a hubba and rail with an adjoining jump box, which leads onto the next obstacle which is a tall pyramid adjacent to a hipped bank off the back of the mini ramp. After this is a section with smaller ramps that is aimed more at beginners and made up of a driveway with hubba and ledges, a hipped bank with a rail and a long ledge to finish off with.
Clitheroe skatepark is a great local spot with a lot of obstacles and ramps arranged in a way that allows for long flowing lines. It is a great place for both beginners and experienced skaters alike and is definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.
