If your child is under 8, please supervise responsibly at the skate park

We very much want the skate park to be a facility that the everyone can enjoy, safely.

A proficient skateboarder can travel at over 20mph around a skate park, so please be particularly mindful of this if you allow your younger children onto the skate park. Whilst some young children may be confident already, others are just learning and travel much slower, stop suddenly, or leave their bikes/scooters/ equipment on the park and wander about. This places them in danger of being hit by a travelling skateboarder/scooter rider (or their board/scooter) who can’t change course in time, and also puts the more proficient riders in danger as they try their best to avoid the small children by ditching their equipment or deliberately falling/jumping off and causing injury to themselves in the process.

For everyone’s safety, if you take young children to the skate park, particularly pre-school children, please be mindful of the above, supervise them/their equipment at all times, consider utilising the park during quieter times, or keep to a quiet area of the park. Then they can grow in confidence and learn new skills without placing themselves, or others, in danger.

A reminder of some of the guidelines listed on the signage:

  • users under 8 should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times
  • use protective clothing/equipment at all times
  • keep all areas clear
  • users of the skatepark do so at their own risk
  • skate to your own ability and do not skate alone
  • this is not a playground

We wish you all happy, and safe, use of the skatepark.

Thank you for your co-operation.
