Petersfield skatepark was designed and built by Wheelscape, opening in 2010. It can be found off Love Lane and features a street section and a bowl as well.
The street section here starts on one side with a quarter pipe that leads into a double ledge set and following this is a wave ledge. After these is a flat rail next to a flat bank on a raised level that has a ledge and manny pad on top and a flat bank leading down to the lower level. The run then finishes with a flat bank with euro gap and rail.
The back of this section is where the bowl starts. It is a large bowl with a rectangular section and a more open, wider section joined onto it. Along the edges are multiple hips and corners and in the centre is a large pump bump. There is metal coping around the edges and an extension on one side that extends around the sides.
Petersfield skatepark is a great local park with a bit of something for everyone. The two sections are well designed and separate to prevent clashes. There are a lot of bumps and corners to pump around in the bowl and the street section has a decent selection. Overall, this is a good place for beginners and experienced skaters alike.
Plans are well under way to start work on the second phase of the Skate Park Phase 2. We are pleased to announce that contractors Gravity will be starting work in the week commencing 7th February 2022, and this will mean that the Skate Park will not be available to use for 15 weeks once works have commenced.
We would like to thank Festival of Young People for their hard work in securing the funds of £218,000 required.
The extension to the Skate Park will provide facilities for younger people and those who use wheelchairs.
