Positioned close to Oakham town centre, Oakham’s Cutts Close skatepark contains quarter pipes, a flat bank, rails, ledges and a spine.
The layout of the park is designed for younger, less experienced users, particularly scooters. This skatepark is not suitable for experienced BMXers or skateboarders owing to the lack of run-off and anti-skid coping.
The original timber skatepark was built for Oakham Town Council in October 2007 at a cost of £25,000. However, following a number of modifications and improvements, the decision was made to completely rebuild the park. In the summer of 2015, a new metal skatepark was built at a cost of £40,000 + VAT.
