Penrith Skate Park
When visiting the northern part of the Lake District with the children a great alternative day out may include a visit to Penrith Skate Park. In these tough economic times it’s nice to find a local council facility which is free and offers some fun for the children.
The skate park is located within the Penrith Leisure Centre campus and has outdoor lighting, a small seating area and car parking a long side should you wish to keep an eye on younger children. With teenagers it’s a great drop of point while you walk the short distance into the town centre. This Lake District market town has a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants for all tastes.
The Penrith Skate Park is a purpose built concrete skate park completed in 2007 and suitable for skateboarding, inline skating, BMX Biking and scooters. There are a selection of concrete skate ramps, boxes and transitions.
There are Penrith Skate Park Conditions of Use as set by the local council and the Leisure Centre;
- All persons use the facility at their own risk
- The facility must be used for its intended purpose
- Appropriate protective clothing must be worn at all times
- In the interests of safety do not bring dogs, glass or alcohol in to the area
