Mount Hawke Youth Group formed in 1982, it's one of the UK's longest
running indoor parks, built originally to meet the needs of young people
living in rural Cornish communities. Mount Hawke started life outdoors
but developed inside in 1996 becoming the South West's largest spot.
Mount Hawke is still the largest indoor skate park in the South West,
boasting a USER footfall of over 38,000 each year and set within 4.2 acres
of land. The purpose built warehouse (24,000sq ft) is split into several
different sections containing some of the UK's highest standard of ramps.
The venue itself provides a safe hub for young people to socialise and
exercise, with opportunities to take part in many competitions/events
that are hosted each year within the Park and the expanding range of
facilities and classes now on offer on & off-site.
Of the many events hosted each year at the park, perhaps the most
unique to date is the parks recent successful bid to hold the first UK National Skate
Comp in September 2018 which will act as a qualifying route for the 2020
Tokyo Olympics (bid to be confirmed Nov 17).
