It has cost £250,000 and the area has been designed for all ages, experiences, and abilities, enabling progression at individual levels, whilst providing a variety of obstacles appealing to differing disciplines, including skateboard, BMX, Wheelchair Moto Cross (WCMX) and scooter users.
Speaking with a few locals, they expressed general satisfaction with the recent improvements. while parents watch their children enjoy themselves at the park.
