Walthamstow skatepark is a small concrete skatepark situated in Lloyd Park opened in September 2012 by Gravity that holds a decent set of ramps and obstacles. It features a mini ramp with extensions, a variety of blocks, a micro mini, a quarter pipe to 3 stair set, a round down rail, small hubba, a small wide bowled corner, quarter pipes and banked hips. These features of the park are centred around a pyramid bank located at the heart of the park to link lines, however this can be difficult due to the fact that the obstacles are quite close to each other and can cause speed issues.
This park is perfect for a chilled session or for beginners to practise some tricks, however due to the small size it can be quite crowded at weekends so best to come on a weekday.
