Work Begins on Felixstowe Skatepark

admin | May 27, 2009

After years of fundraising and hard work by many people, the building work has began on Felixstowe Skatepark. The area where the skatepark is to be built on Orwell Green has been fenced off near Morrisons supermarket and Christ Church. Lots of ground work has been happening on the site including the removal of large amounts of top soil for the £180,000 skatepark’s sunken design. The contract was awarded by Suffolk Coastal District Council to Bendcrete Ltd to build the skatepark, who also built Woodbridge skatepark last year.

Thanks to Rosie Graves for the photos of the current work included in this post.
