Details

The street style skate park is one of the first such facilities in the UK, and is currently the biggest in Europe, spanning over 3200 square metres. Offers street-style skating, meeting all of the previously unfulfilled demands of skaters for street skating facilities. Its design combines all of the elements that skaters look for - including many features seen in the urban landscape such as handrails and steps.

This park has been improved through the Greening for Growth programme with the support of Advantage West Midlands and the European Regional Development Fund. The Greening for Growth programme of environmental improvements was launched in 2003 and is the largest environmental regeneration programme in the West Midlands. Greening for Growth aims to create Well used and maintained landmark parks that offer more leisure opportunities and attract visitors to the area. A North Staffordshire network of safe, attractive off-road routes for pedestrians and cyclists. Canals, rivers and disused railways will link green spaces with homes, work places and leisure facilities, 28km of greenways will be created or upgraded. A landscape to be proud of where major transport routes and developments are set in interesting, high quality landscapes.
