Söderhamn Skatepark in the North
Söderhamn Skatepark in the North, located at the multi-activity/spontaneous sports area.
Söderhamn's new skatepark in the North was built in 2016 with support from the Swedish Sports Confederation's Sports Development Fund (Idrottslyftet) and Söderhamn Municipality. The park is what we, as an association, like to call a semi-professionally built skatepark since it is one of the few "real" concrete parks in Sweden constructed by an association themselves.
The park covers just over 1000 square meters, with a smooth asphalt surface as the riding area and ramps/obstacles made of concrete. The park is highly "street-oriented" but also includes elements such as banks and offers everything a skateboarder could wish for, including flat curbs, flat rails, stairs, ledges, rails, manual pads, quarterpipes, bowl corners, banks, pyramids, euro gaps, and more.
Adjacent to the main park, there is also a wooden mini ramp and an additional smaller micro ramp. The total width of these ramps, in three different heights, is 14.4 meters (mini: 6 + 3.6 m, micro: 4.8 m).
Beginner & Girls' Activities and More:
During the summer of 2023, we offer skateboard equipment lending when we are present and available. You can also get in touch with us to check the situation or book a specific time if we have availability.
We will also be running a free skate camp/day camp/skate school for two weeks. More information about this can be found in a separate post here on Visit Söderhamn, as well as registration and more details on our website: http://www.shamnskate.se
The rules regarding the skatepark state that only skateboards, inline skates, kickbikes, and BMX bikes are allowed. All other equipment or similar is strictly prohibited.
Additionally, time division applies, where from 17:00 on weekdays and from 14:00 on weekends and school holidays, ONLY skateboarding is allowed.
This is due to safety reasons, wear and tear, and limited space.
The facility primarily serves as a skateboard park and should be seen as a (spontaneous) sports area rather than a general playground.
This is for the safety and enjoyment of everyone.
These rules have been established by the Swedish Skateboarding Federation as part of the Swedish Sports Confederation. Read more at: http://www.sverigesskateboardforbund.se/sakerheten-i-vara-skateparker/
