New Skate Park gets ready to roll!

An investment of £40,000 has been made by Amber Valley Borough Council to develop a new skate park in Alfreton.

The Council has been working closely with local skaters to develop the Park at Alfreton Welfare Ground, and the first phase, which will provide great ramps and jumps, is due to arrive in early May.

Amber Valley Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Councillor David Wilson said: “Local skaters have been fully involved in the design of the skate park, they came up with great ideas and we are only too happy to fulfil their expectations. Skate boarding is an excellent way to keep fit and Alfreton Welfare will be a great place to meet up.”

The design has two quarter pipes, one with a curve combo, and both a jump and fun box. It will be ideal for beginners and the more experienced skater and will be ready for the school Whitsun holidays.
