Hilbert & Grosvenor Skatepark Update

I recieved the following response from Cally last week, however have been out of the country so havent had a chance to post it.

The reply is very promising....

Thank you for these comments.  I have spoken with a few park users and received similar feedback.  I did meet with quite a few skaters and BMX’ers yesterday evening to discuss these plans. I was hoping you might have heard about it but I guess its hard to get hold of everyone.

I have been assured that the repair works will be done. Personally I don’t think there is much point adding to the park until the current equipment is restored.

The metal lips or copings were mentioned by others and I am asking Gravity about getting those sorted out so hopefully that will be possible.

With regards to suggested improvements I have attached an angled plan so you can see some of the sections more clearly.  Generally others have said no to 10, 8 and 5, yes to the brick gap if it is flush against the ground, and yes to 6 (but perhaps better if we had a wider one at the other end).  Most people have said to replace 7 with a brand new round rail that is 2ft high and 15ft long (and closer to the grass side).  And others have also said what is the point of re-painting.

I will pass your comments on the Gravity along with the other feedback and I am hoping they will come back to me with an updated plan based on the feedback (and our budget).  I will keep you posted. If you have any further comments or ideas please feel free to get in touch.

Thanks again for your email.  It is very important that whatever we do to the skate park it is what the majority of users want.
