New skatepark design for Stoke Park, Guildford

The Guildford skate scene used to have an amazing little indoor warehouse open back in the early 90’s and also hosted a small outdoor park just nearby the Lido in Stoke Park. Due to wear and tear, this park is about to be replaced and this week, skateboarders of Surrey have unleashed the proposed new design from Wheelscape for you to have a look at here.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Wheelscape’s Escape The Office edit

Concrete skateparks take a lot of effort to build and the skaters who are behind this hard graft sometimes don’t get the chance to skate as much as they would want to. With that in mind it’s good to see Bristol’s Wheelscape grafters hitting up Hullen Edge, Weston Park and Bollington Skateparks up North on a recent trip whilst the weather was better than it is out there right now.

Cradle skatepark to open in Victoria Park, Hackney

East London skaters are being spoiled right now with the addition of parks at Mile End, Clissold and now the arrival of this beast in Victoria Park, Hackney this summer. Wheelscape have released these images of the build that is already underway. The park is scheduled to be open in July/August this year and will be the 2nd UK skatepark to have a full cradle, Hastings being the first- also built by Wheelscape.

Wheelscape’s Petersfield park is now open!

Another one of Wheelscape’s super smooth creations is now ready to be shredded and shralped by all that are keen. Now, there’s no one better to introduce the new park to you than Wheelscape Architect Jeremy Donaldson; here’s what he had to say about the park via email.

Wheelscape’s skatepark in Petersfield is ready to roll.  Fresh super smooth concrete for street and bowl riders alike, featuring a super long linear street course and a double level bowl.  Micro & mini quarters, long ledges, flat bar, hubbas, 2-flat-2 set with rail, brick gap and a wave kicker keep you entertained along over 60m of real street terrain. The main bowl is Wheelscape’s most organic creation to date with rollers in the bowl, on the coping and the decks; the platforms turn up into quarters which link into the 8ft curved Burnside wall at one end of the bowl.  The 5-6ft mid section of the bowl has several hips and a roller connecting into the mellow 8 foot deep end. There is a timber deck along the length of the skatepark to give people space to chill and help stop the usual new-skatepark-mud-bath situation.

Sounds awesome right? Have a look at the video Wheelscape posted today to celebrate the opening below and check the map to start planning your trip.
