Park Near to Completion

Rosie | August 9, 2009

These photos taken at the end of week 9, show the park nearing its end stages. The benches, main outer surface and flood light posts are in place.

Reports have come in that some people have already skated in the park. Please DO NOT enter the construction site, as it is still very dangerous even if it looks nearly completed, there are heavy machinery and dangerous materials around, which could cause injuries. Breaking the fences to get in is also not acceptable! There is not much longer until the park will be open to the public (beginning of September according to sources from Level Two), so please wait out that little longer and enjoy it safely. Thank you!

In Comes the Concrete

Rosie | July 23, 2009

Last week the main structure of the skatepark was beginning to show, but this week at the construction site, the main focus is on the surfaces. The photos below show the workers spraying the concrete to continue to produce the smooth walls, lips and main bowl of the park.

Beginning of Week 7

Rosie | July 14, 2009

Time has gone by fast since our photos at the end of May in the very first week of the build. It’s now mid July and, as the photos below show, the constructors are significantly making way into the final skatepark design. At this stage it is even clear to see the shape of the ramps that are being prepared to be sprayed with concrete.

Check back here later this week to see close up shots from within the construction site itself, here at FelixstoweSkatepark.co.uk.
