Harlow Skate Park
The state-of-the-art skate park was designed by Freestyle Skateparks with significant input from the local skaterboarding community.
The 650sq metre park boasts moulded concrete obstacles such as a bowl, quarter pipes, banks, hips, blocks and rails. Harlow Skate Park opened on Saturday 19 April 2008 and the project was funded by investment of over £300,000, largely coming from Harlow Council with £57,500 coming from Sport England.
The Skate Park is located in the south-east of the Town Park, between School Lane and Howard Way, adjacent to Burnt Mill School. The park is free, and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, although Skate Park lighting switches off at 10pm.
