The Borough Council of Wellingborough is excited to present the new proposed skatepark design for Bassett’s Park that will be delivered in collaboration with Bendcrete Skateparks Ltd.
Skateboarding is enjoyed by all ages and is now recognised as an Olympic sport. Providing an excellent facility in Wellingborough is important to all our generations to encourage them to use the facility and build their skills.
Bassett’s Park is an ideally located park with easy access for people from all areas of Wellingborough. The park currently has a small skate park which needs major updating and repair. It is currently located at the back of the park where it cannot be seen, is near houses and a school and has no lighting.
The council is proposing to re-locate this skatepark to a more visible area of the park for natural surveillance, away from the houses and the school and to a more suitable area towards Westfield Road nearer the existing play area.
The existing skatepark would be removed and replaced with grass for additional recreational space.
Bendcrete have designed the new skatepark having consulted with local skaters, however the council would like for anyone interested in this facility to share their comments on the proposed design.
Your comments will be used to inform the final proposed design that will then be submitted as a planning application by Bendcrete. Local residents will also have the opportunity to consider the scheme, proposed design and location and comment on the application.
As well as the skatepark there are various other improvements that are being made to Bassett’s Park including:
