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 Due to government guidelines we have had to close the skatepark until further notice... Stay safe - and we'll see you all again once we can re-open!
