Brilliant skatepark

My 11 year old son visited twice last week while we were on holiday nearby. He enjoyed his first visit so much he asked to go back again, It’s a fab place and I felt happy to leave him for the 3 hour session. It’s a wonderful place and the kids of Weymouth are so fortunate to have this park in their town. I wish we had something similar where we live!

The need to skate
Aug 2020 • Family
My son has been desperate to go here, they are operating a booking only system at the moment so we got rang them to get that sorted. Great ramps and a good shop, if a little pricey. All the kids were really friendly and we were lucky enough to have good weather. Parts of the park are undercover but a lot is open to the elements. They don’t have a lot in the way of food but they do sell hotdogs, sweets and you can get a coffee (there’s a cafe over the road) sessions are 3 hours which seems quite long but it actually went pretty fast, taking a book isn’t a bad idea if your a parent or spectator. They have their own car park so you don’t have to pay and display at the main car park next door, which is a mistake we made.

My son has recently started scooting and The Front members, staff and Team riders have been great. Helping him get to know the techniques and build his confidence, great staff, lovely hot dogs and plenty of good value snacks during the breaks. Highly recommend to any youngster wishing to start up this hobby 🤘

Brilliant place for all ages. My son has been coming here for 10years and is the highlight of his week down here. He makes friends and absolutely loves it. It's a safe clean place and very very well run. Thanks to everyone for all their hard work in keeping this place up and running 😀

Great place for kids, great prices and friendly staff. All the kids get on well and a few of the older lads, especially Adam, really look out for the younger ones. Would highly recommend:)

We are extremely lucky to call The Front our local skatepark. I can't praise the staff enough. Welcoming and friendly. Food and drinks available at very reasonable prices.
