After an eight-week delay due to COVID-19, Boston’s new skate park is finally underway.
This is the start of phase two of the development in Central Park, the first being a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and table tennis tables which were completed in March.
The Skate Park, after months of consultation, was designed by young people in the community who spent time with Maverick Industries until a final decision was agreed.
Frances Taylor, Play and Physical Activity Officer at Boston Borough Council said: “To work with the young people of the community and achieve a design which includes many features requested by them was a great opportunity for everyone to “have their say” in what they wanted in the skate park. The design includes 22 different features that will give users a wide variety of challenges and excitement.”
She continued: “Central Park will be a fantastic space once this is completed in approximately eight weeks and will bring a new and fun experience to Boston. When the skate park is completed an open event will be organised where some experienced skaters will come along and show their skills, the event will also include the opening of the MUGA and table tennis tables which was scheduled to take place during the Easter holidays but had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.”
