In the south-west of the city, near Sportpark Nylan, you can find our next Urban Corner: The (bigger) skatepark of Leeuwarden. Surrounded by a leafy area and tennis courts, it can be entered from Van Loonstraat. It is a ten minute bike ride or twenty minutes walk from the city centre. Additionally, the Urban Corner is very student friendly without an entrance fee.
The park offers everything a skater’s heart desires. There are a hand full of rails, ramps, pyramids, a kicker and even a pool. Graffiti artworks and tags can be found on nearly all of the ramps and surfaces and add an urban vibe to the location. On the weekends and during public holidays, the park is usually full of skaters from all ages who show off their skills on skateboards, rollerblades, BMX bikes and scooters. If you want to have more space for yourself, it is smart to avoid these times and visit the park during the week or in the morning. But even for people who are not into skating, it is a great spot to hang out. There are many benches to chill and have a drink from where the skaters can be watched.
