Park Opening Update

admin | August 13, 2009

The park is now in the last stages of construction with work still to be completed on the CCTV and Floodlights. We’ve been informed by Suffolk Coastal District Council that we are waiting for the electrical hook up so the CCTV and Flood lighting can be connected. They are trying their best to hurry this along and have been told this is likely to be done in the next two weeks. This puts the park on schedule still to for the official opening which has been confirmed again by Suffolk Coastal as being on Tuesday 1st of September between 11am and 3pm. However, until the work is finished skatepark will remain a construction site and we urge people for their own safety to be patient and wait for the parks completion before using it. If we receive any more information we will post an update here on the Felixstowe Skatepark website.
