Rush Skatepark is an award-winning Community Interest Company (not for profit) and we provide a unique indoor facility based in Stroud. We provide opportunities for riders of all ages and abilities in the Stroud District, Gloucestershire, nationally and internationally to access superb facilities and experience the wider benefits that an alternative sport can bring i.e. scooting, skateboarding, BMXing and inline skating.
Since opening in 2013 we have become a significant international and UK destination for hosting some of the biggest competitions in the world for Scooters and BMX. We have a programme for supporting local talented riders and three of these riders are currently ranked 2nd in the UK, 29th in the world and 7th in Europe.
Rush is situated in Brimscombe Port in one giant warehouse, covering 40,000 square feet, the park is possibly one of the largest (and with the longest detailed continuous piece of street art) in Europe. The sports facility is unique in providing 5 separate parks in one venue and is the only street section of its kind in Europe. The facilities include a Street section, Park section, Bowl section, Practice area with a Resi jump box, foam pit and trials track and viewing platform which holds over a hundred spectators which we had built for the Scooter World Cup in November 2015.
Rush is not just a skatepark we have also held fashion shows, business networking events and most recently a rock concert for local secondary school children.
