The Skate Bowl

 

Close to the park's war memorial entrance, it is one of the oldest skateboard bowls in London, built in 1978 on the site of some derelict netball courts. The Friends of Kennington Park are currently working with Lambeth Council to restore this much loved skateboard park, stage 1 has been to remove the top surface around the sides, the next stage (hopefully starting in June) will remove the concrete surface on the base.  Work will then be required on the support mechanism and, finally, on access and the surrounding area.  All of this requires time, planning and money!   If you are interested in helping, do please get in touch with the Friends.
