Aldeburgh Skatepark was part myth until today. I couldn’t find any mention of it anywhere online other than a forum post somewhere saying it’s near some allotments. So when my daughter and I decided to seek it out this morning I wasn’t sure we were going to find anything at all. But a close look at Google Earth revealed something looking like it might be a little metal ramp, so off we went in search of a skatepark we still weren’t sure existed.
To find Aldeburgh skatepark you have to drive to Aldeburgh Sports and Community hall and then follow a track that goes past the hall to a large playing field. Hidden round the corner from the car park and (yes) behind some allotments we found Aldeburgh Skatepark. All one ramp of it. I’m not knocking it, any sort of provision is greatly appreciated, and any facility like this comes about because someone locally has campaigned hard for it.
The ramp is a metal affair, and it appears to have seen happier days. There’s no rust but a lot of the rivets and screws that hold the plates of the ramp together appear to have gone missing.
The ramp was kinda muddy, but then everything is muddy at this time of year. Aldeburgh Skatepark may not be the most exciting skatepark in the world, but we still had fun.
There’s TONS of parking and when you’ve had enough of skating there’s a fun outdoor gym on the same playing field.
