Folkestone51 is home to the world’s first purpose-built multi-storey skate park and the South East’s highest climbing wall. The Sports Trust are proud to operate Folkestone51 funded by The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust. 

We seek to put skaters, BMXers and climbers at the forefront of Folkestone, celebrating existing talent and encouraging new beginners to get involved through a range of lessons and inclusive sessions to ensure there’s something for everyone.


With three different floors dedicated to both vert and street, F51 has something to offer for all abilities and skatepark sports.

The skatepark is home to our coaching sessions, community jams and holiday camps.
