Unperturbed by Storm Brian, a decent crowd showed up in Charlton Park on Saturday morning to witness the official opening of the skatepark. A downpour mid-morning meant a bit of delay in proceedings but by 11.30am skating was underway, after a short speech by Denise Scott-McDonald, Greenwich Council’s cabinet member for Culture, Creative Industries and Community Well-Being, who encouraged the crowd to “to get skating, whatever your age!”.
The skatepark is located next to the outdoor gym, close to the Old Cottage Cafe. It features a bowl, plus a street skate area, and was being used by people on skateboards, BMXs, and microscooters when we visited.
