Work to build a new, wave-shaped skate park at Sheringham has been completed.
The new skate park was designed by users of the former skate park ‘The Strip’ and is a third larger than its predecessor; it offers skaters and BMX and scooter fans plenty of exciting new features.
North Norfolk District Council has worked closely with skate park Chair, Rob Sayles, who has been involved with the skate park for more than ten years. Rob and other committee members, together with staff from the Council organised a series of open evenings, at which parents and young people were given a chance to put forward their ideas for the design of the new skate park.
Completion of the £150,000 project, undertaken by skate park specialists, Maverick, marks an important milestone in the Sheringham Leisure Centre project. The former skate park was demolished to make way for the development of the £10.7 million project to build a state-of-the art leisure facility.
Plans are now underway to organise a celebratory launch for the new skate park which is likely to take place on Saturday 6 April, weather permitting. Details will follow in due course.
