What do we need?
Ultimately our dream is to have a new, bigger and better concrete skate park to bring skaters, skateboard, scooter and BMX riders into Tewkesbury.
For us, a new skate park would bring new people and families into Tewkesbury. Health and well-being is very important and it would provide a safe, fun, sociable area which caters for all ages, experience and disabilities.
Pump 17 are working very closely with Tewkesbury Borough and Town Councillors and have researched several skate parks for ideas, inspiration and costs. We’ve met with four skate park designers and presented our findings to Councillors at our committee meetings. Our proposals are with Tewkesbury Borough Council for further investigation and their consideration.
