  The Clapham Common Skate Park is one of Lambeth's gems the facility is located in Clapham Common alongside Rockery Road.
The London Marathon Trust have awarded Lambeth Council £75,000 to redevelop this popular skate park at Clapham Common. The skate park aids the growth of Urban Sports in the UK such as skateboarding, aggressive in-line skating, bmxing.

I was happy to hear from Nick one of the skaters featured in the video is also on the Clapham Common Committee for the re-development of the Skate Park successfully lobbying for change. "The popularity of the park really calls for      more ramps, rails and a half pipe"Michael Mapp (also a featured video skater).

I've watched the facility grow over the years a skater myself, a very rusty one mind you, I was tempted today to go home and put on my skates and join the guys practicing but just opted to watch them and view their amazing skills and enjoy this glorious April weather. Skating is an excellent sport for the family and really should be encouraged my three year old has been asking me for skates since she was two years old, her feet are almost ready for her first pair X Games here she comes...
