It's time to improve Victoria Park skatepark. The current park is stage one of a two-stage project, the second of which was never completed.

by Bristol Skatepark Collective in Bristol, Bristol City, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 7th July 2022 we'd raised £23,123 with 293 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

The extra funding will get us even closer to our ultimate aim - which will enable us to maximise the potential of the area and provide even more opportunities for decent improvements to this space


This project is to improve the skate park facilities in Victoria Park, South Bristol. 

We believe free outdoor wheel park facilities in Bristol are not good enough and do not reflect the needs and demands of children, young people, and the local wheel park community.

Who are we? Bristol Skatepark Collective.

BSC has been actively supporting skatepark improvements in Bristol since 2015. We are a collection of local parents, skateboarders, and business owners. Our most recent project includes the successful fundraising and installation of the new section at Dean Lane skatepark known as The Slab. We have also supported Campus skatepark in the building of their indoor concrete skatepark, The Pool. You can find out more about our projects on our website: www.bristolskateparkcollective.com

What is this project about?

This is a neglected space that is in dire need of updating to safely accommodate increased users as we emerge from lockdown post-COVID-19. 

The park currently resembles a derelict piece of tarmac that holds excellent potential for dramatic improvements.

What would the improvements look like?

Proposed improvements could include; resurfacing of the space with smooth concrete, re-purposing of some existing blocks and the addition of new equipment to create a better layout and more exercise options, and the addition of a transition element (ramp/bowl) to cater for more users.  We have some initial (not final) design ideas from various companies which show the potential the space holds. The final improvements we can make will depend on the budget we raise. 

How will we make this project happen and how much will it cost?

We have already raised £130,000 for this project - but we need to raise additional funding to really make a difference to the space.                                                            

The estimated cost of this project is £150,000/£200,000 This could include the following.                               

‣  Recycling and relocating elements of the current skatepark.                      

‣  Building additional modern features to complement the recycled features, including a transition element/ramp.                                                          

Current funds                               

‣  £60,000 raised via CIL funding.                                

‣  £50,000 grant application via Enovert.

‣  £10,000 grant application via Ibstock.   

‣  £5,000 quartet foundation

WE WILL WORK TO MAKE THE BEST SPACE WE CAN WITH THE FUNDING WE RAISE - THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE TO RAISE MONEY FOR THIS SPACE - PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY IF YOU CAN!

Frankly, we are getting left behind. Take a look at the other facilities in local cities and towns. Let's not forget that these places have far smaller demand with less wheeled enthusiasts, yet far superior facilities. As a proud Bristolonian, I am ashamed of this fact. We need to catch up.
