  • the bottom of south street by the subway, outside the old cellar bar
  • all the little dudes hang out at the bottom of noRth street at the bottom of the market ......
  • Rom skate park
  • roneo corner next to the river/ditch theres some good ledges, on the way to ROM skatepark and theres also a realy good park in dagenham built by fearless ramps(the guys at rom)
  • the mighty rom skatepark, upper rainham road hornchurch
  • There is a good beginner spot with a 5 and 6 foot quater pipe, a small bmx course, two funboxes and a five foot roller perfect for starting out skaters it is normally deserted, if not there are some nice skaters there, it's quite hard to find it's situated in a weird park called Cotton's park somewhere in romford down Mawney Road, don't end up walking down the long winding side roads follow the music land shop round the corner and down the road to cottons approach on your way out there a great side sloping pavement, random.
  • smooth 3 stair. Location - brewery, near brewry bus stop. Behind brewery car park, near OUT ramp is a kicker. Town hall has a 5 stair and a 9 stair, and way behind the town hall in a car park is a huge gap, equivalant to a 7 or 8 stair set. Find urban arts, and near by is a 2 stair set. Ford car garage by brewery roundabout is a nice drop, also if you walk along the front of the garage toward the brewery eventually youll find a nice waxed ledge. Brewery near big ramp, near boots, is a huge stair set with gud run up and landing. (youll hav to be insane to try it). outside decathlon are several benches - slidable but not grindable. Near macdonalds in liberty is a nice 4 stair set - poor run up good landing. Cottons park has a skatepark. If your walking away from romford and cottons park is on your right, keep walking on the left hand side of the road and youll eventually find two red ramps.
  • Rom Skatepark still offers the same entry prices reported above in 1998. Open 10am until 6pm all weekend and school holidays.
  • severn kings park has built a skate park in the last couple of years, you get the younger ones but it aint bad.
  • By the Brewery on the outside path, neaar the road. Many not-very-good-but-think-they-are skaters, but fun to watch if you're bored.
  • on a saturday we go to the brewery opened recently wheres theres loads of hotties hanging around as well as the romford tarts
  • There are some kick ass spots in romford there is the subway outside liberty 2 in front of the dolphin and behind the library there is some long gradual slope and there is all stuff that looks like quarter pipes at the end and outside musicland near como street there is the subway and not forgeting the Rom which is a skatepark it is next to the cardrome just outside of romford!!
  • THERE IS A PHAT SPOT AT ROMEO CORNER RIGHT OUT SIDE THE NEOPOST BUILDING. IT HAS FOUR HUGE STEPS U CAN OLLIE THEM THE BOTTOM 1 IS WAX UP SO U CAN GRIND AND SLID.

  • At the end of george street there is this like car park thingy wihich is pretty open and quite.
  • romford libary ... a pukka skateboarding spot full of staires bars walls and none of it is too high so its briliant for bigginers but experienced skaters can do some excellent street skating as well
  • ROUND BY THE BUS STOP AT ROM MARKET ITS PHAT
  • Straight Road, Harold Hill, coming down from the top,get a bus going back!!
  • The 'ROM' skate park second only to 'playstation' and arguably better as bigger and has original concrete moguls plus new ramps being added.Although like the council lacks imagination as new paint job (graffetti style) and music would turn it into one one the country's top venues.
  • Was there, back in the day of boards, bmx's and skates (none of this 'in-line nonsense). When the market place and the fountian used to get ripped up every Sunday by skaters. Kids stealing the market boards from the sheds to set up ramps. 100 kids skating another damaged lunatic to Old Church hospital. Skating down the ringwell of the multi story, in a crouched position, because the skinheads at the top are throwing sticks down as you circle round. Then once you reached the bottom, breathing deeply, feeling glad you're not hurt, the Big Mac cartons, full of gravel, again thrown from the top deck, would begin landing next to you. "Quick, lads," one of us would shout "Let's skate away." Yeah, that was skating, mate. Back in the day.
  • Classic skatepark. Huge area of concrete, performance bowl, pool, moguls, cloverleaf, half-pipe, slalom run into banked freestyle area, two mini ramps, spine ramp. Cafe, shop, games. Tel: 01708 47729 (If you're interested in vintage concrete in London, you should also consider Harrow Skatepark. Nearest tube is actually Elm Park. Come out of the station and turn left. Go down the the little ruondabout and turn left again. Follow this residential road all the way to a T junction. Turn right and follow the road as it rises up towards a huge petrol station and learner-driver track. The park is there, next to the petrol station.
