Hampson Park skate park designs unveiled

11 Mar 2015

Following consultation with the town’s young residents and skate users, Stevenage Borough Council is pleased to unveil plans for the new skate park at Hampson Park.

The skate park, which is due to be completed in summer 2015, will be built by Wheelscape, who specialise in bespoke skate park designs and won our open tender process. Local skate users picked the design out of a choice of three, and will be meeting again with the designers to finalise what will be included.

Stevenage Borough Council leader, Councillor Sharon Taylor, said, “This is a great example of the council responding to requests from young people and doing all we can to provide facilities for them in town. This new skate park will offer opportunities for people of all ages to practice the sport as well as those thinking of taking it up.”  

Matthew Hewitt, General Manager and Owner of Wheelscape said, “We’re pleased to be a part of this project and look forward to starting work on the skate park. The next step for us is to meet the users and develop the design to meet their needs.”

The skate park design will be available to view in the council offices later this month.
