The Harlow Council Skate Park opened on Saturday 19 April 2008. The state-of-the-art facility was designed by Freestyle Skateparks with significant input from the local skaterboarding community. The 650sq metre park boasts moulded concrete obstacles such as a bowl, quarter pipes, banks, hips, blocks and rails. The project was funded by investment of over £300,000, largely coming from Harlow Council with £57,500 coming from Sport England.
The Skate Park is free to use and open all year round.
