About The New Skateboard Park In Porthleven

 

This information was kindly provided by Kerrier District Council:

The project was developed in response to the successful use of Kerrier District Council’s Mobile Skate Park in Porthleven. This was operated over a 5 month period, during which a lot of consultation with young people was carried out. A further consultation day was held in August 2005 to finalise plans to improve the wheeled sports provision.

When the park design had been determined we set about finding funding. The total cost of the project was £21,000. This eventually came from:
West Cornwall Liveability (half of total)
Porthleven Town Council
Community Grant
Mobile Skate Park Initiative

The park was installed by GBH ramps and has been designed to be low maintenance and as rideable as possible for all ages and abilities. All ramps have been filled with special acoustic foam to reduce noise.

The official opening on 18th Feb was done by Mark Berryman, Porthleven Town Council Chairman. Through Kerrier Leisure, we then ran a competition and free skate that was a great success.
