The new improved and much-needed Fordingbridge Skate Park was installed in April 2019,  and officially opened on 1st June 2019.

Local youths helped advise planning during the initial consultation process and the final design selection went to Maverick Industries (Pictures here)   who specialise in building skate parks across the South.

A new Skate Park in Fordingbridge 

UNFORTUNATELY, LESS THAN A YEAR AFTER ITS OPENING, VISITING VANDALS HAVE BROKEN THE FLOODLIGHTS AND LOCAL YOUTHS ARE FRUSTRATED THAT THEY CANNOT MAKE USE OF THIS ESSENTIAL SOCIAL AND ACTIVITIES MEETING PLACE AFTER SCHOOL DURING THE DARK WINTER MONTHS.  

REFURBISHED AT A COST OF £130,000 THE SKATE PARK WILL SADLY REMAIN EMPTY AFTER DARK WHICH IS A TERRIBLE WASTE  OF AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE  IN A SMALL TOWN WHERE THERE IS VERY LITTLE ELSE FOR YOUTHS.   

FORDINGBRIDGE TOWN COUNCIL HAVE NO MORE MONEY AND NO PLANNED BUDGET TO PUT TOWARDS THE SKATE PARK IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE.
