SKATE PARK

Our fantastic outdoor skate park is hugely popular with members, offered every day as part of senior and junior sessions.

With support from our skate park staff, have a go at BMX biking in the safety of our purpose-built skate park or try out one of our scooters and see if you can learn some new skills.

Here at the youth zone, we have 10 BMX bikes and 9 MGP scooters all available for hire free of charge for members who want to have a go. The park is open to all ages from juniors to seniors and is always monitored by staff to ensure safety at all times.

Every day we have new challenges and tournaments on, in addition the team take members to local indoor and outdoor skate parks to try their skills out somewhere new.
