Stockwell

Another original piece of London’s skateboarding heritage, featuring some of the best flowing lines around, Stockwell skatepark achieved its notoriety by being one of the earliest and largest outdoor skateparks in London.
Built in the 1970’s, it has been sessioned by everyone from Jason Lee to Bam Margera. This skatepark offers something for everyone.
The most recognisable feature of the skatepark is the long, wide snake-run traveling the entire length of the park. The many smooth hips, perfect for pumping or airing, open it up to lines involving the whole park. In addition to this, along the far wall of the park there are three bowled corners, with coping, connected by hips that lead to a rollover to link it up with the rest of the park. Between the snake-run and bowled corners is a flatbank with stairset, the run-up to this being along the platforms of the bowled corner section, on a curve making it pretty hard to skate. On the other side of the rollover it a sweet little quarter-pipe that is perfect for slides, and games of skate. Around the skatepark there are other quirky little obstacles like nipples and small bowls for pumping and keeping up your flow as you fly about the park. An extension to the snake-run, with coping, doubles up as a crazy steep pyramid funbox when approached from the flat. Next a section of the wall of the skatepark is a whippy little quarter-pipe, to shoot you up into wall-rides.
The skatepark has been re-surfaced a few times over the years and was overhauled for the last time in 2007, when the ideal surface was found and it remains super smooth to this day. For all lovers of skateboard playground site online gokken provides free deposit.
Whether you are in London, or are planning to make the trip, it is a definitely a skatepark to visit.
