Anything goes these days so seeing a multi-storey skatepark idea wasn’t that much of a surprise, but when you look into the design and construction idea that Guy Hollaway Architects have proposed Folkestone’s skate scene, you can imagine they are salivating at the prospect of it becoming a reality.

Each floor has its own function, including ‘an international standard bowl floor, a flow park and a street floor’. This can also be skated from floor to floor, so it’s easy to imagine the possibilities of what the outcome will be knowing that most of us enjoy skating a public car park for that very reason, specially when it’s raining.

It could well be signed off following a public consultation this weekend and plans being submitted within 8 weeks. Fingers crossed it goes ahead and they find someone special to make it incredible, such as Canvas Spaces, whose plans for the incredible new Bath skatepark will be announced on here very soon.
