Ground Broken on New Skatepark Site

BSTC - 6th January 2016

Construction work has finally begun on a new Skatepark for Bradley Stoke. Councillors, Officers and Local Young People met on-site to mark the occasion.

The Mayor Councillor Roger Avenin commented, 'I am pleased to have officially started the construction of the New Skatepark Development for Bradley Stoke. The former park has proven itself to be a significant asset to the Town over the years. However, the current park has now met the end of its useable life and needs to be replaced.

'Building on the success of the existing park, we have taken the opportunity to reach out to the community to understand how best to replace and rejuvenate the park. The New Skatepark will be a modern state of the art amenity which will serve the community for many years to come.'
