A statement was released last night from the owners of Flo Skatepark in Nottingham stating that they are to close their doors due to lack of support and too much competition from outdoor, public skateparks.
“Unfortunately as of today Flo Skatepark is no longer trading, the gates will be closed as of today. In part this is due to increasing competition from outdoor parks and also a lack of support from our local community. Flo Skateparks thanks our regular customers and we are disappointed that it has come to this.”
It’s tragic to hear such news. We send our thoughts to everyone who has put so much effort into building and keeping the park open. They cost a fortune to run wherever they are based in the UK. Support your local park weekly or risk hearing more announcements like this.
In related news, Freestyle skateparks are still in the frame to build a new outdoor park in Nottingham, which is said to be still in planning status. The designs from the original plan has been changed and new imagery will be online soon.
