Stevenage petition for an indoor park

Postby LostnotFound » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:28 pm

Just seen this via the local rag.

Obviously I'd love an indoor park where I live but do have some questions (beyond if it would get built anyway).

All the talk is about kids, given the current park is linked to a youth club this worries me that it won't be open for old fogies. Which would be a shame as I'm sure an undercover vert ramp would go down well with some.

Is that Harrow's halfpipe in the picture?

I don't think so, it looks like 'our' one at the current skate park.

It certainly is the Harrow half pipe, quite an odd picture to put up there unless they just want to build a big indoor one of those!

I thought it might be, I haven't been there for years though, does the Bowes Lyon skatepark still exist in Stevenage then, a lot of years since I went there for a skate or an ESA meeting?

Argh you are of course correct, there are some good photos on Google of the Stevenage one but my new phone is terrible and won't let me copy a url.

Skate park is still there.

Stevenage looks quite similar though!

(BTW good to see even in 2006 MASers were enjoying a good argument!)

And in less than 3 hours my green wheels should be doing some classic kick-turns in the Harrow one, about 1ft up the transition like usual :mrgreen:
