We are a charity skatepark....

We are volunteers

We are run on grants

We have expanded

We are different to normal skateparks. Indoor Skateparks are usually run as a business and outdoor skateparks are usually built and owned by local councils. We are different, our skatepark is a community project, and is owned and managed by a charitable company - Wheeled Sports 4 Hereford Ltd. Our skatepark is run by a committee who listen to the end users and take their views into account to make it better for others. All the money has been raised through grants/donations, organised by the project group.

The Boom Box

We have a proper SKATEBOARD SHOP at the skatepark and this is usually open Mon, Wed & Thur 1130-1730, Fri & Sat 1130-1830, Sunday 0900 -1600, as a minimum, and other hours as well if we can. We continue to run coaching sessions if you want to get into skateboarding. We have all the equipment, skateboards, helmets and padding so you can come along without anything or if you have a skateboard bring it along. If you want to check out something in the shop or arrange some coaching please give Jay a call on 07946 842388

All the income from the shop goes towards keeping the project going and the upkeep of the skatepark. 

We have an upstairs Art Gallery Wall for regular exhibitions and if you would like to exhibit in the gallery just post us. You will need to send us some pics of your Art so we can plan our exhibition program.

We didn’t raise enough to build any toilets on the site but there are some in next door Leisure Centre or across the road in the B&Q store.

Lighting

There is full skatepark lighting with a "card reader" system. Users of the park can purchase cards - £2.50 for 1 hour to switch the lights on and these are available in the Boom Box shop at the skatepark. 

Before you can purchase cards you will need to sign up to the Hereford Skatepark Membership scheme. Membership is a one off £5 from the Boom Box. 

If you already have a membership card you can also purchase the lighting cards from the TEXACO 24 hr petrol station in Holmer Road

The membership scheme is designed to make sure that those who want to use the lighting are skateboarders, BMXers and roller bladers and not "lurkers" and also reasonably adult to ensure that the lighting system is not abused.

Important information...

How to get to the park

Address of Hereford Skatepark is Holmer Road, Hereford. We don't have a postcode yet so for Sat Nav, etc use the Leisure Centre which is HR4 9UD.


Holmer Road is also the A49 going north out of the city to Leominster, Shrewsbury. We are just after the Leisure Centre if coming from city centre and B&Q are opposite.


If your coming by train head out of the station towards the city centre, to Commercial Road. Turn left across the railway bridge then you can cut left along Barr’s Court Road. At the mini roundabout, left on Burcott Road over another railway bridge, sharp right on the other side still Burcott Road. Turn left onto Farriers Way going past big stores including PC World them right at the roundabout onto Newtown Road. Keep going to next mini roundabout then right on to Holmer Road, almost there!

No Scooter Sundays

On most days, and especially at weekends, the skatepark gets very busy. In an effort to give the different ages and sports some time to properly enjoy the park there is a special arrangement of Sundays.


Every Sunday from 0800 – 1300 is a time just for scooter users and under 10 year olds.


From 1300 -1800 its No Scooters or under 10 year olds.

How to help

Etiquette

How to act at the park

Everyone loves skateparks, whether you're a skateboarder, inline skater, BMX rider or scooter rider. But for years there has always been rules to follow to ensure no one is seriously injured and that everyone has fun.; DO NOT SNAKE OTHER RIDERS! I.e. don’t go before your turn, don't go when someone else is having his or her turn. Keep your eyes open & your wits about you. Skateparks are dangerous places & people can travel very fast. Sit down well out of the way. Keep safe. Wear the appropriate safety gear; don't go flying about flinging your scooter, BMX or skateboard in ways you cannot control.
