7) Frontside Gardens, Hackney Wick, London
This was one of our favourite skate spots in London last summer. They even let us host a girls session or two! Frontside is a unique skatepark, built on an area of wasteland left after a warehouse was demolished. Creator, Andy Willis got together an array of recycled materials, many left over from the Olympics, to create something for all to use. Check out some action from the park on Sidewalk.
