Announcement from BDBC:
“Major improvement work to facilities at Basingstoke’s War Memorial Park is getting under way this week.
People of all ages will benefit from revamped play and leisure equipment including new parkour and skate parks and an upgraded pump track. The popular children’s play area will be replaced, in the same location as present, but with separate spaces for toddlers and juniors to enjoy new equipment, such as climbing equipment, swings and roundabouts. A new, concrete skate park will be built for skateboarders to replace the well-used one. In addition, the Green Flag awarded park will have outdoor gym equipment and a brand new parkour park. The existing BMX track will be replaced with a pump track for use by bike and scooter riders and skateboarders. New seating and bins will also be provided at the enhanced facilities.”
This might take some off the pressure of the Rooksdown skate park in the future. See BDBC website for more details.
