The Youth Activity Area


This area is comprised of a skateboarding area, teen shelter, a ball games area for cricket and football and a multi-use games area.

Current condition

The cricket wicket is on a slope rendering it difficult to use. The cricket wicket and goal post require renewal.

Use of the Skateboard Park disturbs residents adjoining the park and has been the subject of a legal injunction governing noise. As a result the skateboard ramps are chained up at 8.00pm during summer to prevent use in the late evening and at night.

Future Plans

The usage of and demand for the cricket wicket and goal post will be assessed as part of a review by the Town Council of current participation trends to evaluate level of provision.

The Skateboard Park is considered integral to the park and so, if a suitable budget can be identified, it will be moved to a more central location allowing for unrestricted use. Failing this, planting will be added to the mound, including an acoustic barrier of willow to increase screening and reduce noise intrusion for local residents whilst maintaining visibility and security levels.
