Royal Oak (Meanwhile 2) Skatepark

Known by either Royal Oak or Meanwhile 2, this park has been beneath this underpass for a long time in the form of the two half pipes. However in August 2008 Freestyle finished works on the skatepark to unveil a small new section adjacent to the original features.

The two half pipes are in line with each other but set at differing heights with a large gap in between, made famous by Mark Gonzales with his front side ollie in 1987. The lower half pipe has a bowled out edge and recently had a ledge added that follows this around.

The part of the park that has been built more recently is simple but has enough space to re-adjust between tricks for easier lines. It features a flat bank and a T-block ledge with a pyramid hip and a bowl corner.

Surprisingly this is one of the very few undercover/indoor skateparks in London, and it’s free! It’s a great place to come for a relaxed session or on a rainy day and it has lighting too meaning that night time sessions are on the cards.
