Alexandra Palace Skatepark

Alexandra Palace Skatepark is tucked away near The Lake in Alexandra Park. The park overall is pretty small but has a lot of features. These include two 3 stairs, hubbas, quarterpipes, flatbanks and a spine attached to a fun box.

The ground is pretty smooth and by having the banks etc. almost mirrored the flow is good. My main complaint would be that the quarterpipes are pretty large proving it difficult for beginners learning new tricks. On top of this, the graffiti that covers the park, makes the ramp slightly slidey, so watch out for that. These are roughly 5’ high and the transition is a bit too mellow, but that’s just me. The spine is also a bit weird for me too. The gap in between the two ramps can be very off putting if you’re trying blunts or something. However, saying that, I rarely skate spines so it varies from person to person.
Overall though, if you fancy going down for a morning session, do. It’s enjoyable if its empty and you’re with your friends. There is a bit of everything that would appeal to most people however, I wouldn’t suggest trekking there or plan to go for a whole day. The park is open all day but is closed at dusk.
