Cradle skatepark to open in Victoria Park, Hackney

East London skaters are being spoiled right now with the addition of parks at Mile End, Clissold and now the arrival of this beast in Victoria Park, Hackney this summer. Wheelscape have released these images of the build that is already underway. The park is scheduled to be open in July/August this year and will be the 2nd UK skatepark to have a full cradle, Hastings being the first- also built by Wheelscape.

Gravity set to build Cyclo skatepark in Kent

Skaters who are nearby the Kent area are preparing themselves for the delivery of a concrete paradise at the new Cyclopark that is being designed in Gravesend. The A2 Activity Park will bring a variety of extreme sports alongside more traditional stuff like cycling, running tracks etc but the addition of a cracking new concrete skatepark designed and built by Gravity should make any skater in the vacinity happier than Charlie Sheen in a kitchen apron right now.

Located just south of Gravesend, within easy access of the M25, A2 and Ebbsfleet International, Cyclopark will provide a hub for the local community, and will bring regional and national events to the area when it opens in 2012. Check out the plans for the build right here and spread the word.
