It's Nearly Here - Mill Skate Park Sittingbourne
Young people really do have the power to change their communities – Mill Skate Park
After years of campaigning and challenging the local authority, a group of young people from Swale have finally started to see the hard efforts of their work come together. July this year saw the commencement of the construction of The Mill Skate Park in Sittingbourne.
The Skate Park is being built next to the Mill Way Retail Park and Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway. The site is close to local shops, fast food units and a short walk from Sittingbourne Train Station, allowing young people across the County to access this exciting new facility.
The 524m2 facilities has been designed to cater for all disciplines, ages and abilities to create a safe and flowing skatepark which will feature rails, grind banks, jump box, stair set and a rotate platform ditch bowl.
The construction of this amazing facility was due to completed in October 2019 however contractors have taken longer over the final stages than hoped with landscaping and planting also required to enhance the site. With winter approaching whilst we herald the completion of the build the best of this facility will be seen and celebrated with an organised an event scheduled for Spring.
