Bay Sixty6

Everypeoples Guide Bay Sixty6

London's indoor skate facility has had a long and somewhat chequered history since it's opening in 1997 underneath the A40 (Westway) in West London's Ladbroke Grove.


Opening under the Road Runner brand the skatepark was soon renamed Playstation after owners reached a deal with the park owners. Although the park has changed sponsors several times (as well as Playstation the park was also known for a short while as X-Box) we will always refer to it as Playstation.


The skatepark's current incarnation is in the form of the Nike SB branded Bay Sixty6. The sportswear giant came in and reinvented the skatepark in 2012 replacing the haggard and somewhat outdated obstacles with some new, more street orientated obstacles and a new bowl which may be more design led than skate friendly (the park has won numurous design awards since it's latest re-opening).


We are still mourning the old mini ramp setup at the park but these things happen and Bay Sixty6 is still alive and worth a visit if but for nothing else than to avoid some London rain.


The skate park also houses Stand Up Skate Shop, the only skater owned skateboard store in West London.
