The following is a step by step guide to getting a skatepark in your local area.
1. Form a community group of local users
- Representatives from different sport wheeled groups
- Different age groups
2. Speak to the local council
- Get the local council and community involved with the project early on
3. Finding a location for the skatepark
- Will you be replacing an existing park or is it a new location?
- Is it near houses?
- Does the location have good road access and parking?
4. Design the skatepark
- What other skateparks are in the area?
- How big will the skatepark be?
- Will there be something for all wheeled sports?
- We’ll develop the design alongside you to create the perfect park to suit the local community
5. Planning permission
- Once a design and location are agreed the project will need planning permission to progress
- Identify potential funding sources in your area, the council may be able to help
- We can help if you need more guidance
- A CAD model of the design will be created and all the construction drawing for the builders will be generated from there
- The steel parts required for the skatepark will be fabricated at our factory near Manchester
- Our team of specialist skatepark builders will be on site typically 6-8 weeks depending on the park size
- During the build we can arrange site visits with the user group
8. Quality control
- At the end of the project our team will test ride the skatepark
- Finally the skatepark will be inspected by ROSPA
