We’re beyond stoked to announce that permission has finally been secured for the build of a new skatepark on the grounds of the old mini ramp at Victoria Park in Leamington Spa. After helping secure funding with the SOS Community Group, through a £60k grant from Sita Trust and negotiating £50k match funding from Warwick District Council, we were responsible along with Canvas Skateparks for the design of the park.
“We’re stoked to soon be working with the locals of Leamington, Ripride Skateshop and Warwick District Council, on their new project,” adds John Flood from Canvas. “This is gonna be a good one!”
Building work is due to start in August of this year and is expected to take between 6-8 weeks. We’ve worked really hard on these and hope you’re as stoked as we are on them. Check out the plans and get ready for the opening jam.
