Derby Skatepark Update - one month on

A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks, the bowl has started to be dug, the quarter has taken form and the driveway has landed, you can really start to get the scale of it...

Banks to the left...

Quarter to the right...

Driveway being formed

Give it a couple of months and this will look even better...

Pouring and testing concrete

Final plans are here, and it's going to be amazing. Some great stuff in here which is unique to Derby and definitely worth coming to session. Progress from today is a concrete smoothness test and some progress reporting. Have a look.

Walking around the earmarked bowl area


Standing area around bowl

Laying the first area of concrete, the area which we'll approve as not to be too slippy or rough

Trowelling / smoothing machine is on it

Crazy dance moves and trowelling

Hand finishing


The site is pretty big... can't wait until May!

Skatepark update

The base of the park is starting to take shape, and the path is started too. It's coming!

Looks like the hardcore is down, it's flat too

Daffodils loaded and ready for Spring

Different view of the scoops

Getting a feeling of the size

Looks big

The path will be there


There will be some good all round filming angles from these banks when it's done that's for sure. We'll keep you posted!
