Welcome to Southsea Skatepark

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

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.

#update Thursday 16th January. Sadly, but second day in a row that we are rained off. Damn you January! Hopefully better luck for sessions this coming weekend. #southsea #southsea78 #concrete #southseaskatepark https://www.instagram.com/p/B7YuEbUHBLh/?igshid=1cydpd75n57xz
