Get Your Skates On!

Submitted on 26 July 2017 by STC Officers

Seaford Town Council is currently inviting tenders for the design and build of a concrete skate park located in The Salts Recreation Ground.

The current skate park, with freestanding obstacles/ramps, is no longer fit for purpose. Following a public consultation, the decision was taken to replace it with an impressive new concrete park funded with S106 monies from the Martello Place development and other grants.

The new design will accommodate a wide range of users (skaters, scooters, inline and BMXers) and as many abilities as possible. It will encompass a circuit with good flow, some unique terrain and offer many of the expected features of a great skate park, including:

  • Street elements of differing heights to allow for different abilities and progression
  • Snake run/transition elements/burns/humps/banks as part of the circuit
  • Small but whippy transitions
  • Small but challenging features
  • Standalone quarter pipe
  • Pyramid hip.

Local resident and owner of The Hair Lounge, Leanne Lange, said, ‘My sons use the skate park on an almost daily basis and will be thrilled to know that a new skate park is to be built over the coming months. They’ll welcome the fact that it will provide more challenges and variety than the current park; it’s great that Seaford Town Council recognises the importance of this facility to Seaford’s youth.’

Tender documents can be found at:

The closing date is Friday 8th September at 13.00.

Craig Williams, the Facilities Manager, will be pleased to answer any questions regarding the tender and can be contacted by email at Craig.williams@seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk or by phone on 01323 894870.
