Burgess Park Skate Bowl & Urban Games

Closed 4 Oct 2020

Opened 24 Aug 2020


We want your views, to help us shape designs for a new skate park and environmental improvements at Burgess Park.

Burgess Park is situated near Elephant and Castle, Southwark, next to the hugely successful BMX Track London.

We are looking to create a new high quality free-to-use skatepark, catering for a variety of sports, including skateboarding, BMXing, scootering, climbing calisthenics and parkour. We have put together a design proposal that also includes environmental improvements to offset some loss of green space around the skatepark.

We are seeking your feedback on this phase one design proposal project.

This phase one consultation is now closed and responses are no longer being accepted.
