Otterspool, Liverpool

Anyone know anything about this one? There is a bowl. It also has a tree in the middle. Apparently it's finished and opening this month. Can't find any other pics though. I've been told people are skating, scootering it already, as they do.

Hmm. Think I was misinformed about there being a bowl?

For a minute I thought the bowl was going to be the bit with the tree growing out of the middle :lol:

It looks like a cool place to skate and has officially opened today :D .
The post code is L17 5AR and I hope to skate it in the next week.

Liverpool Echo July 2014:
A three-month consultation was held to examine how many parks were needed and where they should be located, which found that at least three sites were required.

The proposed skate park at Everton Park has the highest anticipated cost, at £400,000, and will be built adjacent to the existing MUGA pitch, and linked with the existing Everton Park masterplan.

The planned facility at Newsham Park will cost an estimated £250,000, and is to be created between the model boating lake and the play area.

The sites at Otterspool and Dingle Bank will cost £185,000 and £150,000 respectively.

Any of the others appeared?

EDIT: Glow in the dark at Everton Park... :shock:

Skated it with my boy this morning. It's good fun although you need to go when quiet as it's not very big.
