Residents’ opinions wanted on new Lincoln skate park

The designs for the proposed Lincoln skate park are now available, and the City Council want residents’ opinions.

The City of Lincoln Council unveiled the new skate park designs during a skateboarding demonstration at the Lincoln Independents event on July 4.

The new park by Gravity Parks, which will now be situated at Hobblers Hole off Long Leys Road, got the approval of 44 people at the event, but needs more opinions.

Antony Angus, Recreation Services Team Leader said: “The design offers something for everyone.

“I’m really pleased with the response so far. Not only skaters, but residents who live near the proposed site talked to me about the overall scheme and signed up for the design.

“It was great to have that level of understanding and support for the project from local residents.

“The design will be on display at the Grindhaus skate shop and is posted on the Facebook group ‘Lincoln Skate Park Project’ for all to view and comment. It’s critical that we have a fully supported design by the users before we move forward.”

Residents living near the skate park site will be contacted shortly by the City Council to discuss their concerns and questions with officers.

There will also be a general public meeting for the park at the Grandstand Community Centre at 10.30am on Saturday, July 13.
