The Friends of Marple Memorial Park web site has been updated with the latest developments on the Skate Park, including 2 designs schemes that will be discussed further with Skate Park Users.http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html
We still have some consultation work to do before deciding the best possible scheme for our park but the key challenge now is to raise enough money to get it done. We've established that it will cost around £25k to refurbish and improve the existing skate park and we have simpler schemes from the contractors featured in the site that would cost around £50k.
We would like to achieve the best possible upgrade to the Skate Park but whether it will cost £25k, £50k or £75k, these are significant sums of money that we do not yet have
It's important that we do not raise expectations too high too soon and Skate Park Users excited by these schemes need to understand that it may take a long time to find the funds needed
. But that's not going to stop us trying!
