On May 6th, The Thames Skatepark was opened after years of lobbying for a new one in our community. The Thames Youth Forum and The Skate Revolution crew in conjunction with the local council were the driving force behind the completion of this project and we were well represented on the day with members of these groups as well as our crew here from TYC. It was a great opportunity to celebrate the opening of the first of the Active Thames 2018 Community Facilities. Rich Landscapes has released this family friendly design with potential for a future pump track extension.

The design was created with the feedback from our youth and park users. A massive thank you to all those who contributed to creating this amazing space for our young people and adults in our community. The Thames Skate Revolution crew / Youth Forum who lobbied for the park for 10+ years and worked with the council to design this park and complete this project.
