Welcome to Southsea Skatepark

We’re possibly the oldest and most iconic Skatepark in the UK – and in 2018 celebrated our 40th birthday!

We open all year round and welcome everyone from beginners to pros.

The park is operated by a charity and all our income goes to keeping the park running and improving. Donations are very gratefully received and we also welcome offers of sponsorship.

Hello everyone!

From Thursday November 5th, Southsea Skatepark will be temporally closed in line with the latest government guidelines introduced to tackle the pandemic.
We will be sad to close the skatepark for the time being, but we wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us so well throughout the summer/autumn season. Up until the October half term, the weather has been fantastic.

Thank you again for all of your support during these difficult times, and we hope to see you in December!

Stay safe everyone, be kind to each other!

From all of us at Southsea Skatepark. #lockdownpart2 #southseaskatepark #southsea78 #southseavibes
