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.

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.

Montanya Magica

Playgrounds. We loved them as kids. You got to slide around, jump over things and just generally let loose. Well as a skateboarder nothing much changes. So why not take your skateboard to the playground and relive those memories from childhood? And this time you get to combine your passion for skateboarding and play (Well I guess they really are the same thing aren’t they:) At this spot you will find giant metal slides. They can be skated like mini ramps, launched into or anything you want. That is the fun of playing, you get to imagine the possibilities. If you want to find it check out the Skate Spot Map. Have fun!

Montbau

While some spots like MACBA or Fondo have a bunch of awesome places to skate in one spot others are more spread out like Forum. Montbau (named after the closest Metro station) is more like Forum. Here you will find several great spots all within a few blocks of each other. One of the more interesting ones is the Sculpture Park. Sculpture #1 provides two banks to skate with different steepness and you can even ride the sides which go into the sculpture. Great for pictures.

Sculpture #2 in right beside number one and is a little harder to skate but fun enough. Another block away and around the corner you will find a really weird looking brown sculpture. Not sure how good it is to skate but some people have definitely tried.

The next spot is the famous ledge that goes over a sand gap. While this ledge is fairly worn it provides another great photo op as well as some smooth pavement to cruise around on.
