Board 2 Extremes
Board 2 Extremes was set up in February 2002 by a group of 10 to 15 year olds assisted by parents and youth workers. Their aim was to find a suitable area of land and to secure funding to build a skate park where they could skate in safety.
A suitable site was eventually secured at the start of 2004 and by March 2005 all the funding for the project was in place - £45,392 - raised through local fundraising and applications to various funding bodies.
The skate park opened its gates to the public on 23rd October 2005. Admission is free and it is open from Monday to Friday 9am to 9 pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm and Sunday 11am to 6pm to Skate boarders, Rollerbladers and BMX bikers of all ages and abilities.
