Crystal Palace Park skatepark consists of an extended 100 metre long and 11 m wide curved concrete band, filled with a wide range of rideable terrains.
At one end sits a cloverleaf pool, complete with swimming pool-style stone coping and tiling – the first skateboarding pool to be built in London for 40 years. This is 8.5 ft deep in the large round section, and 6 ft deep in the shallower sections.
In the middle is an L-shaped steel-coping bowl offering a multitude of hips and curves. This bowl varies between 5.5ft in the shallowest sections to 7 ft in the deepest section.
And at the other end of the skatepark is a large mellow section, mostly 2-3 ft high. It offers various flat and transitioned banks plus an angled hip, banked ledge, pump bump and a 5 ft high taco.
The skatepark is free to all users, and is open during daylight hours.
Built by Canvas Skateparks, Crystal Palace Skatepark opened in March 2018 at a cost of £350,000. The park is managed by Bromley Council, in liaison with the Friends of Crystal Palace Skatepark community group.
