New Skateparks + Extra

Barcelona is well known for its great street spots but recently its added a few new parks into the mix. In case you get tired of street skating here are the newest two parks for you to check out.

The first one is Les Corts Skatepark located about four blocks from the L5 Pubilla Cases Metro station. This park is a mixture of banks, street obstacles, rails, bank to wall rides and everything else you need for a good session.

The second one is Marbella Skatepark. Have you ever dreamed of skating an awesome bowl, getting sweaty and then jumping into the ocean. Well here’s your chance. This new park by the ocean is reminiscent of the old snake runs but with parts that have coping. It’s the kind of park you can cruise for hours and still come back for more. Definitely worth the visit.

Another older park is Sant Adria del Besos Skatepark. A little outside of town you have to get on the train and head to Estacio de Sant Adria. Nice little spot in a park by the beach. Has a metal bench, flatbar, corner hip and quarter pipe. Good for a lazy afternoon.

Off the Charts

A lot of spots are found in places you might never go. Tucked away in Barcelona neighbourhoods, backstreets and  the little parks that litter the city there are tons of places waiting to be discovered. The hard part is finding them. This list will hopefully make that a bit easier and in the process mean more time to skate. Just click on the photo to find it on the Skate Spot Map.

Parc Central de Nou Barris

If only every park was made like this one. If you like skating banks in all varieties this is the place to check out. The whole area around PCNB has banks and drops into banks and gaps into banks. If you want to find exactly where these are go to the Barcelona Skate Spot Map.

One of the more unique spots which provides a great photo op is the wooden triangle gaps. There are a bunch of wooden triangles in a lagoon that you can gap over. It’s a challenge but hey it can’t all be easy. There’s also a cool bank (big surprise).

There are lots of other things to skate in the area so just cruise around and explore. You might even run into this ledge sticking out of the building with a gap into the bank.

WARNING: Ledge to Bank Heaven

We had several people asking where this spot is located. Thanks to Tom Randall for giving us directions. Unfortunately while this place looks great it’s a bust. If you go here chances are you might get a ticket from the police. There are signs all over the place forbidding skateboarding so if you do go skate at your own risk.

If you still want to know the exact location check out the Barcelona Skate Spot Map. Also check out the video below for footage at this spot at 1:24.

Beer Banks

Somewhat out of the way, this little piece of paradise is found at the end of the L9 line at the Can Zam station. Named the beer banks because it is near a beer factory it’s hard to imagine why this place even exists. What is it for other than skateboarding? In the end it doesn’t really matter once you are there enjoying it.

The ground is smooth and the banks are waxed and ready for whatever you can throw at them. I have seen a lot of these banks imitated in North American skateparks which is no surprise. It seems like they were made for skateboarding.
