Positioned close to Oakham town centre, Oakham skatepark contains quarter pipes, a flat bank, rails, ledges and a spine. The skatepark is well built and made from good quality timber and skatelite. The park is quite small, but during peak times in the summer it attracts skaters, BMXers and scooter riders of all ages and abilities.
The Oakham Skatepark project cost £25,000 and was completed in October 2007. Since then, there have been a number of modifications and improvements.

Oakham Skatepark is a 5 minutes walk from Oakham train station where you can get trains to and from Leicester and Peterborough. The local bus station is 5 minutes away, behind Wilkinsons. There are several car parks nearby, with Church Street and Burley Road the closest, both 2 minutes from the park.
Oakham skatepark is just a three minutes walk from public toilets, and is just as close to two car parks and Oakham town centre, where there are plenty of shops and cafes. Although there is no floodlighting, the skatepark is situated in Cutts Close Park (near the All Saints Church) where there are street lights, bins, and grassy banks that are regularly used by bikers.
