Below is an overview of the Park project as a whole including the skatepark and BMX Track in the top left corner adajcent to Farnborough Road, this scheme below has not be finalized as is still at the consultation stage with all parties involved.
There is a meeting on Wednesday 2nd December at 6.00pm at Green Lane Youth Club, Clifton off South Church Drive with the Council to discuss the proposals. The meeting is planned to finish about 7.30pm so if you get back from work late you could still catch the tail end of the meeting.
This Skatepark meeting didn't seem that well publicized by Nottingham City Council, so that next one needs to be pushed more by us users.
Please attend to show your support and express your idea's.
Check out Nottingham City Council's Website for contact details and brief details of their proposals.
There is now a Skateboarding Training Session starting up at Clifton Leisure Centre. Check out the flyer below.
UPDATE October 2010 - Planning Approved and Mavericks have won the project
There is a meeting for the New Skatepark and BMX track at Clifton Playing Fields on Tuesday 26th October at From 7pm, the meeting with Maverick will become an open meeting for anyone interested in the facility to have a look at the designs and make comments. Please can you spread the word about the open meeting at 7pm. Its at the Clifton Playing Fields on Farnborough Road, Clifton, Nottingham. Everyones Welcome !
Check out the inital Designs which may need tweaking, depending on your comments !.
If you want dirt jumps aswell, you'd best get down there and air your views, as there will be loads of fresh mud available !!.
Hopefully this will be the first of many in Nottingahm, we need a flagship Skatepark very close to the centre of Nottingham too, placing Nottingham back on the map for Skate and BMX destinations in the UK.
Are these designs going to work for a pump track ? and do you want an area for dirt jumps ?
If so get yourself down to the meeting on 26th October at 7.00pm !
LASTEST UPDATE - January 2011
After another group meeting with the Public input just before Christmas, Mavericks have slightly altered the design of the street section to meet the calls of the users. See the final revised scheme below.
Next to the Skatepark is going to be a BMX Pump track and here are the lastest design, if however you feel there is something that needs tweaking before it is created on site please get in touc with Nottingham City Council to see what they can do. As there hasn't been much input from a great deal of BMXers on this one.
Please post your coments and show what you think.
There will be some great soil coming out the ground for the Bowl sections, so if any local BMX Groups/riders want to contact the Council and try and see if they can have some dumped near the Pump track for creating some free formed dirt jumps too.
