Skaters get a say on new Lincoln skate park

Consultation: Local skaters can have their say on plans for a new skate park in Lincoln, next to the Grandstand on Carholme Road.

Local skaters can have their say on plans for a new skate park in Lincoln.

The proposal would see a skate plaza built on land to the right of the Grandstand on Carholme Road.

It’s hoped it will provide a growing community of skaters with a multi-purpose skate park that can be used all year round.

The City of Lincoln Council set up a consultation meeting to give skaters the chance to speak directly with the designer and project manager and put their suggestions forward at this early stage in the development.

The meeting will take place at the Grandstand Community Centre on Thursday, November 1 at 2pm.

The council also put together a set of frequently asked questions, including answers relating to specifications of the site and disabled access.

The name for the skate facility designed by Gravity Engineering is The Kiln. This comes from a number of Roman kilns that were found on the site when the former Grandstands were taken down. Click to zoom

Antony Angus, Team Leader for Recreation Services, said: “We’re really keen to hear how local skaters feel about this proposal for a new skate park.

“As the project manager, I’ll be on hand, along with the design company Gravity Engineering, to answer questions about the design, listen to suggestions and talk through any issues that people may have.”
