Acton Park - Skate park proposal consultation

This consultation will close on 16 September 2017

The consultation

As part of Ealing Council’s investment to improve facilities for young people within the borough we are seeking the views of residents and park users on a proposal to build a new skate park in Acton Park. Despite the popularity of skateboarding and its recent adoption as an Olympic sport there are very few dedicated skate parks in the West London area with just one in Ealing, therefore skaters have to use non-designated public areas or travel to access such facilities.

The skate park would be designed so that it fits into the park visually, this can be achieved with careful landscaping. Our approach to designing the skate park is to integrate the facility into the community, to provide a safe environment for users and to encourage spectators to enjoy watching the skills and dedication on display. This helps to foster understanding and mutual respect, breaking down barriers between skate park users/young people and the wider community. Our existing skate park facility near Gurnell Leisure Centre in Greenford has proven to be a great place of interaction between people of all ages, older children helping and teaching younger ones and adults skating with their children.
