Features the first full tile-and-coping pool to be built in London for 40 years. Plus another L-shaped bowl, and mellow shallow area. Relaxed vibe, open to all, with free access. Crystal Palace Park skatepark consists of an extended 100 metre long and 11 m wide curved concrete band, filled with a wide range of rideable terrains. At one end sits a cloverleaf pool, complete with swimming pool-style stone coping and tiling – the first skateboarding pool to be built in London for 40 years. This is 8.5 ft deep in the large round section, and 6 ft deep in the shallower sections. In the middle is an L-shaped steel-coping bowl offering a multitude of hips and curves. This bowl varies between 5.5ft in the shallowest sections to 7 ft in the deepest section. And at the other end of the skatepark is a large mellow section, mostly 2-3 ft high. It offers various flat and transitioned banks plus an angled hip, banked ledge, pump bump and a 5 ft high taco. BMX, quad-skating, rollerblading, scootering and skateboarding have all been considered in this design, and riders of all ages and abilities are very welcome. Surrounding the skatepark – which sits in a distinctive raised tray-like platform – are a series of landscaped grass mounds, allowing for multiple viewing and relaxation points. The wider setting of Crystal Palace Park offers a variety of other leisure, play, café and transport facilities.
