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 14th November - it’s been a struggle to try and get the skatepark dry today. Foggy start to the day and no wind has not helped, we are closed today. Nothing is dry at the park at all. Try again tomorrow.
