PARC is a Harpenden-based charity (Registration no. 1179147) that was initially set up to raise funds to rebuild Rothamsted Play Park. This project was completed in 2021 and the play park is now a much loved and well utilised hub for local families.
Following this success, PARC are continuing their strong partnership with Harpenden Town Council to replace the skatepark situated in Rothamsted Park, adjacent to the Leisure Centre. The existing skatepark is comprised of steel ramps that are corroded and at end of life. The project will deliver a concrete moulded facility that will serve all ages and abilities and all wheeled activities including; skateboards, rollerskates, scooters, bicycles and wheelchairs. The facility will be open year-round and will be free to use. We hope that it will bring people together and become a meeting and activity hub for many years to come.
Betongpark is the company behind the design. The Local Planning Authority has granted planning permission for the project to go ahead. PARC is working towards a 2024 delivery but in order to make this happen, we need to raise £250 000. We can only do this with the help of the community.
