Beverley Skate Park To Act As Open-Air Drop-In Centre For Young People

Since opening the Skatepark, located at the Beverley Leisure Centre has proved very popular with young people.

The council now wants to bring the skatepark up to date and is exploring changing the layout and types of ramps currently installed.

Beverley Town Council has had a meeting with ERVAS and as a result, is going to start consulting with the skate park user groups through their youth outreach workers. 

Plans being discussed include whitewashing the skatepark and for young people to work with professional street artists to create new spray paint artwork on the appropriate surfaces.

Also, they will start having well-being workers dropping by to give the skate park the feel of an open-air drop-in centre for young people. 

It is hoped that by doing this the young people who use the facility will get enthusiastic about upgrading the facility while getting their ideas and to also encourage new youngsters to drop by.
