Work commences on Haydonleigh Skate Park, Haydon Wick, Swindon
We are delighted to announce that works on the Haydonleigh Skate Park are now underway.
The Parks & Projects Team made a start on dismantling the previous skate park equipment at the end of May and prepared the grounds ready for the project to begin.
The project began this week with the installation of the dropped kerb; a temporary measure that is needed to safely transport the new equipment to site.The next stage is preparing the ground in readiness for the installation of the new skate park equipment and the proposed installation should start by the end of June. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak there have understandably been delays to the start of this project as our partners have been working with limited resources. However we are hopeful that once the wheels are in motion and installation is underway it will be a matter of weeks before the new skate park is complete.
The new skate park is designed in such a way it can be used with skateboards, scooters, bikes and wheelchairs and to suit a range of ages and abilities. You can view the 3D model so that you can see just how much of an impressive structure this will be within our parish by following this link: https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/415-haydonwick-tenderdesign-annotated-1164b2e754244ffc9f259dcfa7d38f8f
Once complete, we hope that we open the park safely and in line with the latest Government guidance at the time. More about this as the installation progresses.
