Opened in May 2007, this plaza style concrete skatepark is hidden away between the arches of the railway bridge leading into London Bridge station, near the White Grounds Estate. Designed by local architecture firm DIVE and Rich Holland in coordination with local skaters with the intention of maximising on the space, and is a great example of what can be done with an unusually shaped area. It features transitions, banks, stacked and staggered ledges and also a mini ramp in one of the corners. There is also a lot of potential for wall riding here using the obstacles and the existing arches.
This is a fairly small and unusual park and good for a casual afternoon session if it’s not too crowded. The site is lit for night time sessions but check the Southwark Council Website for opening times before making the trip, especially for weekends and bank holidays.
