Victoria Park skatepark building

The Victoria Park skatepark in Leicester was built on an old basketball court and now features a small plaza-style design. Building the skatepark involved preparing the site, clearing it, pouring concrete footings, and constructing reinforced concrete walls.

After finishing the first phase of building, we continued constructing the skatepark by doing earthworks, adding reinforced steel, and pouring concrete. The client requested additional tarmac surfacing work.

Skatepark construction was finished in six weeks. Clark & Kent was the contractor for the oldest skatepark company in the UK, and the client was Ground Control on behalf of Leicester City Council.

Victoria Park was Leicester city's racecourse until 1883 and is now a popular park with 69 acres of open parkland next to the University of Leicester campus. For more active visitors, the park is also home to a bowling green, a croquet area, four tennis courts, football and rugby pitches, two floodlit Astro pitches and an outdoor gym.

The former skatepark was very old and had only two obstacles to challenge skaters. The new park offers a wide range of jumps to tempt new skaters and challenge the more experienced. There's a video of the new Victoria skatepark opening day jam here.
