Where to skate

Stoke Bridge Skatepark - Ipswich - IP1 1AX

This park is a lot bigger a more spaced out than a lot of the other local parks. it has all sorts but being an older park, it is relatively basic. A good park to get to grips with some basic flat ground skating between obstacles. a 5 and 6ft halfpipe, flat banks, rails, ledges and much more. everything you need is here. 

Woodbridge Skatepark - IP12 4AW

Not initially visible from the road Woodbridge Skatepark is just behind the Deben Leisure Centre with parking available right next to the park. A very nice, small and mellow park. Great for the basics and every skill level. one of my personal favourite parks!

Whitehouse Skatepark - Ipswich - IP1 5LP

This fairly new skatepark is a bit more creative with some different obstacles and angles which allows for different skating. However this park is a bit smaller than most parks. There are some areas to park nearby but no official parking. It is located in Whitehouse park with some play equipment nearby.

Hadleigh Skatepark - IP7 5ER

This skatepark is quite mellow with no ramp over 3ft and offers some less common obstacles with a decent amount of flat ground space to learn on. Overall a very nice park to learn. It is located in a park which offers nice surroundings and also has nearby parking. 

Bury St Edmunds Skatepark -  IP33 3TA

The biggest park locally, Bury St Edmunds park has a bowl, ramps and many street obstacles including a stair set. This park is great for some mellow ramps and obstacles also combined with some more difficult ramps. Around the outside of the park is a pump track and there is nearby free parking. 

Saxmundham Skatepark - IP5 3RH

This skate park is small but is fairly new to the area and shows it with a more modern design. it has some different obstacles but doesn't offer much flat ground space or small obstacles for beginners.

Framlingham Skatepark - IP13 9BX

A good skatepark for beginners and more advanced skaters with a mixture of prebuilt metal ramps and concrete ramps this park. there is no immediate parking but some parking in the area of the park. The park has seating and isn't too crammed together. it can stay a bit wet or have lots of leaves in the winter. 

Belle Vue Skatepark - Sudbury - CO10 2RT

The newest park in Suffolk this is a more creative park. The Park is very small which can make it difficult to skate for beginners. with a mixture of street and ramp terrain this park is bound to spark some creativity in you. 

Stowmarket Skatepark - Stowmarket - IP14 1PR

This skatepark is relatively small but includes a few things. many of the obstacles in this park are quite steep or large so not recommended for beginners learning the basics. it has some small quarter pipes, ledges and some rails. there is not immediate parking but some parking areas around the recreation park. it can get a bit muddy at times when wet or in winter. 

Colchester Skatepark - CO1 1YH

this park is a nice big park with a large multi level bowl and a mix of street and ramp obstacles. it has tarmac around the main areas of the skatepark and split into areas. this can allow more space for when the park gets busy. This is a popular park with seating and some regular meetups. overall a good park for beginners and every level. There is the leisure centre and mcdonalds just around the corner with pay and display parking. 

Leiston Skatepark - Leiston IP16 4XD

Recently renovated, Leiston skatepark features a lot of different things to learn on, lots banks and quarter pipes. some of the ramps on the old section of the park can be quite steep and daunting for beginners. also with a stairset, rail and deep bowl section this park has lots of room for progression. 

These are only some of the more local skateparks around Ipswich but of course you can skate anywhere else and there are plenty of more skateparks around!
