Southbank Skatepark is widely recognised as the birthplace of British skateboarding and has been home to skateboarders and graffiti artists for the past 40 years. In 2014 the area was in danger of extinction due to re-development of the area. Southbank was saved though by the efforts of The Long Live Southbank campaign which won the right to keep Southbank for skateboarding.
The plaza style park features a variety of blocks, a 7 stair set and banks. There is enough room for beginners to learn the basics but the park can be extremely busy at times.
Southbank is a must for all skaters, it has no set opening times and is undercover which makes it a perfect spot all year round.
