SPOT CHECK: Asylum Skatepark

Flowy Set Up In Nottinghamshire

A long time in the making, a story of determination, backed by the support of a family, the first version of Asylum Skatepark finally came to fruition thanks to Jack Plowman back in 2013.  It was a great little park, nicely designed, not a huge footprint but the space was used very well indeed.

“When I was a kid I remember the scene from the days of Derby Storm. Now, ten years later, I keep seeing the old faces show up here. Seeing everyone come back together here is awesome. There are such a sick bunch of guys who come here regularly, it gets me psyched. It’s good to see people bond over something I’ve made happen. I get as much enjoyment from seeing a sick session go off here than I do from actually riding my bike! I still love riding, it’s just so good to see everyone having a good time here and getting stoked.” – Jack Plowman

After six years at the original site, Asylum wanted to expand.  A new, much bigger warehouse became available down the road and they managed to pounce on it, with the amazing new layout that you see here, which opened in December 2019.

Backyard Jam held round 4 of the 2019 series at the park, just before it opened to the public.  Watch the video highlights below.
