Eccles Skateboard Park was looking very tired so the Council decided it was now time to replace it as it was felt that no more repairs could be carried out. It was after all 10 years old and very well used. After a site meeting with Urban Ramps to view the existing equipment and size of the site they drew up some designs for us. The Council picked one that they thought was best suited to those who would be using it and then carried out a consultation on site with the proposed plans so local users could have some input as well and this way the Council could make sure that the proposed new Skateboard Park was the type of thing they want. It is now finished and feedback from local users has been extremely positive. The Council received a "Thank You" card from local users, which was a lovely gesture.
 
This is what it looked like before
