Skateboarding Spots
  • Cantelowes Park (between Oseney Crescent and Camden Rd)
  • Cantalowes is not closed as it says in the listings. The council took the metal ramps away, but theres still the original tombstone and banks. The scene is thriving, with old and new rippers. Come and check it out. Camden Road, Camden. (not sure if it should be in Kentish Town lisitings!) Also Talacre bowl that was filled many years ago, has now finally been destroyed during park renovations.
  • You're joking aren't you - there's not a a flat surface to be had anywhere...
  • Cantelowes Gardens, Skate Facilities, Kentish Town, London Unfortunately, in December 2001 the London Borough of Camden Parks and Open Spaces Service had to close the Skateboarding facility at Cantelowes Gardens for Safety reasons. It will remain closed until funding is available to refurbish the skate park to a safe standard. We apologise for the inconvenience.
  • Cantelowes Park
  • Cantelows Park. Downhill slope into paving stone bank. Mogul type bump with banked sides. Fun. Heavy rollerboot presence, but also used for occasional sessions by many London skaters. Put this one fairly high on your list of places to visit after South Bank. Now [97] has a 6.5 foot midi-ramp with attached quarter-pipes. The concrete banks have been extended upwards, with steel coping attached. There is also a transitioned 'grind-box' on the banks.

    There's more information about this spot in the Slam City Guide.
