Transgression Skatepark opens in Edinburgh

The City of Edinburgh in Scotland finally has an indoor skate park to be proud of.

Located in the top level of the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, Transgression has now opened after much wait for local skaters and covers 9020 sq ft floor space. It also has views out across the Forth Estuary and the Royal Yacht Britannia probably making it the highest skatepark in the UK.

Graham at Focus Skateshop in Edinburgh told us on the phone that ‘by all accounts it’s pretty well done and not as BMX orientated as you would think, respect must go to all that made it happen locally but I guess it’s just a shame it took private money for it to happen – hopefully it will bring more skaters to Edingburgh and the local council may want to get involved next time’.

Transgression is open now and can be found at – check for their up to 75% sale before it’s all gone.
