Bourne Valley Wheeled Play Area Alderney

An overview of the design

Updated 11th November 2015

Located on the site of a disused sports pavilion at Bourne Valley Park, this excellent new concrete skate park received some serious interest from the outset.

Opened at the end of October 2015 and created by Maverick Industries it is suitable for use by skateboards, micro scooters, inline skaters and BMX bikes and provides a valuable community resource in the area.

As part of Bourne Big Local, the Bourne Valley Action Group (BVAG) led the project for this new wheeled play area at Bourne Valley Park. The project was funded through the Bourne Big Local grant as part of a £1million package of community led projects on the Bourne Estate.

After completion of the project the community handed the wheeled play area to Borough of Poole to maintain into the future.
