Formed in 1986, Mount Hawke Skatepark is one of the longest-running indoor parks in the UK. Built originally to meet the needs of young people living in rural Cornish communities, Mount Hawke started as an outdoor facility but was developed inside in 1996, becoming the South West's largest indoor skatepark.
The majority of the current set-up was designed and completed by FourOneFour Skateparks in May 2016, with the pool being installed in February 2017 after being generously donated by Ramp City skatepark in Blackpool.
The purpose-built warehouse stands at 24,000 square feet, and is split into different sections; street and transition, the 'black pool', the bowl, the rhythm section, the vert ramp, mini ramp alongside a new outdoor plaza and pump track, making us an all-weather facility.

MOUNT HAWKE YOUTH GROUP AGM 2022 MINUTES
MYHG AGM 20/21 ACCOUNTS SUMMARY
The Trustees and Staff of Mount Hawke Skate Park hold their duty of care to the customers and the charity in high regard.
During “Covid-19 Closures” we took the opportunity to improve the level of Health and Safety within the Skate Park.
Over the past 18 months we have invested a substantial amount of money elevating the Skate Park to an unprecedented level of safety.
Recently we have appointed a new manager who brings with him a great deal of experience. We believe these skills will facilitate Mount Hawke Skate Park to continue to improve its professional standards.
Our hope is that these improvements will enable the charity to apply for and win the large funding it requires to maintain the facility and bring the Skate Park up to an Olympic standard. This will ensure our current and future champions have somewhere that meets their training needs, as well as providing an enjoyable experience to all our customers, staff and the greater community the Skate Park serves.
The Trustees will continue to work with the General Manager to help realise these ambitions and endeavour to keep the Skate Park thriving in the ever evolving, much larger skate, BMX and scooter global arena.
