Clark and Kent Contractors were chosen to design and build a new skatepark at Tisbury, and the state-of-the-art skatepark was officially opened by Tisbury Parish Council in 2020.
With its quarter pipes, sloped wall-ride, pocket-to-pocket jump box and Matterhorn roller-coaster escalator, the new skatepark has proven to be a great success. The council agreed that this skatepark built by Clark and Kent Contractors was far the best use of space on the King George V Playing Field.
The in-house design team at Clark & Kent worked alongside the user group to ensure that the final design work suited all users and incorporated their requirements for a modern and exciting new skatepark.
The uniquely formed arched wallride is now a focal point for the park and differentiates it from others in the area. Its unique features are rarely found on skateparks of this size and scale.
Clark and Kent Contractors were prepared to do a lot more speculative upfront work before construction to encourage maximum user-group consultation and public engagement.
Construction of the Tisbury skatepark took place through June 2020 and was completed in nine weeks, in line with the council's timescale and ensuring swift and efficient delivery of the project.
Tisbury skatepark construction was complete on time and under budget. Everyone involved agreed it had been a great success and would have no problem recommending Clark & Kent Contractors for future work.
