Bromley Church House Gardens, South London

The Bromley Church House Gardens Skatepark offers skatelite obstacles on a tarmac surface. There is a big mini ramp with a roll-in and extensions for vert in one section and in the other section there is a driveway with ledges flanked by banks and quarter pipes.

Overall the park has pretty basic obstacles as it is a standard council build. If you live nearby it’s a great asset but as the park is quite standard it’s not worth making a big journey to get here.

There are no toilets on site but there are shops nearby with toilets you can use.
