Our City Mill Pool Street skate park is a temporary community facility created by UCL and partners on undeveloped land on our new UCL East campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at East Bank, the UK’s newest cultural quarter.

The skate park was borne out of UCL's City Mill Skate research project and designed by and with the local skateboard community. The temporary facility opened in the summer of 2022 and has hosted a series of events and learning opportunities for skaters of all abilities and ages and their families.
