Kennington Bowl Skatepark

Kennington bowl is one of the oldest spots in London and one of the original spots on the UK skate scene, having been open since the 70’s. It is a rectangular bowl hidden away in Kennington Park and up until recently was virtually unskateable due to its age and lack of coping.

However, in May 2012 the shoe manufacturer Converse under their ‘Fix to Ride’ scheme, with help from California Skateparks, re-surfaced the concrete to make it a smoother ride and added several new modern elements to sides of the bowl. The bowl now features roll ins, a bowled corner, an extension with a love seat and two bank to ledge elements.

This is a nice place to come and get to grips with the basics but does not challenge the more experienced bowl riders and the lack of coping does make it harder to ride, however Kennington Bowl is a classic, old skool spot and should be on your list of spots to visit for an afternoon session at least.
