Kimber Skatepark, located in King George’s Park next to the River Wandle, is an enclosed concrete plaza style loop with additional metal-frame ramps and BMX track.
The run starts on one side with a quarter pipe that leads up to an earthquake gap and then on to a bowled edge that doubles back around to another run that features a series of ledges. In between these two runs is a more open area that has flat banks on either side with a bowled edge and rail in the middle.
Kimber skatepark is a small and simple course but has the basic elements that you would expect from a street plaza. The layout has been well designed to make a loop that you can skate around and the surfaces are super smooth making it a good place for beginners and more experienced skaters alike.
Kimber Skatepark was built by Freestyle Skateparks, opening in the summer of 2013 at a cost of £170k.
Kimber Skatepark is managed by Wandsworth Council and is subject to summer opening times of 3pm-6pm Monday-Friday and 12pm-6pm Weekends and school holidays. The park is restricted to users under 18 years of age.
