Skate BDN Barcelona Agora is a public plaza 100% dedicated to skateboarding.
Designed by California Skateparks, world leader in the construction of skateparks, it’s the first park in Europe to be certified by the Street League Skateboarding and which is prepared to host international competitions. Nearly 5,000 sqm with hubbas, quarter pipes, and flat rails, designed for the most pro riders, and others more suitable for beginners.
Its location is strategic, its surroundings postcardlike. Located opposite the Badalona beach, at a 15-minutes train ride from the Barcelona downtown and with the ocean in as a backdrop, to skate in Skate Agora is to skate in a skateboarding temple in a Mediterranean atmosphere.
SKATE AGORA is a step towards the coastal recovery and a step forward for the Barcelona metropolitan area, which, despite being among the skating capitals of the world, was lacking facilities up to its reputation.
The park is open from Sunday to Thursday from 09.00h to 22.00h and Friday and Saturday from 09.00h to 0.00h.
Skate Agora was designed following the skaters needs, taking into account the activities and competitions it will host. The area devoted to the skatepark has three main sections:
Designed for the teaching of the young and beginners. It features 4 stairs, low handrails, hubba up slope, flat rail with manual pad, and handrail and platform.
Designed for all-levels of skaters. It includes long stairs with soft and long handrails, a wide bank to bank with a 1,5m gap and 2 kinds of handrails.
Designed for medium to professional skaters, suitable for international competition training, due to its mandatory measures. It includes 7 stairs, central hubba and 2 handrails at both sides. There’s a volcano with a bank in the middle and a full quarter pipe, with 2 rollings at both sides and 3 quarter pipes with hips.
The total area of Skate Agora is 4,683 sqm, 1,250 sqm totally devoted to skatepark.
