New Skate Park Progressing Well
Published: 2 November 2018
Work is progressing on a new skate park for Exeter. The new facility at Arena Park is expected to be ready by Christmas.
The design of the park has been chosen by a group of local pro skaters working to a design brief heavily influenced by the local skating community.
The skate park will feature ramps, quarterpipes, flatbanks, ledges and rails. The plaza style design will also feature a viewing/seating area overlooking all the action.
The old skate park had to be broken up last year after it came to the end of its usable life.
Cllr David Harvey, Lead Councillor for Place, said the City Council had consulted with the skater community right from the start to find out what equipment they required.
“In the end we had more than 300 people taking part in a consultation exercise to contribute ideas for the designs of the new facility,” he added.
