This could be good, worth keeping an eye on to see how it develops.

That's bonkers. Sounds like a respectable budget for 15 parks. Anything close to that been done before?

Let's hope they have some unique features in there, not just the usual predictable stuff :-)

If they just built a replica of XC i'd be happy.

"The new Rampworx Youth Village Wirral development will also have a climbing wall, workshop and office space, cafe, business start-up units and more"

Sounds like most of the £6m will be spent on non-skate stuff.

Strange I can't help but feel empathy with this statement :lol:



So is this new place going to be wood or concrete then ?

Huyton isn't that far away and was big budget too. Still a bit far for me to go on a whim. If this is built with RC and Huton the NW has more than it's fair share of big parks.
Then again the local sports hall and astro turf at my local school cost £4m, just had a google and the one at lancaster uni was £20m...
