Skatepark construction underway whilst council seek public’s help to name park
Published Thursday, 16th May 2019
The hotly-anticipated construction of a new skate park in Southend will begin today (Thursday 16 May) with Maverick Skateparks moving onto the site at Warrior Square to begin the build.
The council gained planning permission to build the skatepark on 20 December 2018 following a comprehensive consultation period to decide on the location and design of the facility.
Whilst the construction takes place - which is anticipated to last 14 weeks - the council is asking for the public’s help in deciding a name for the new facility. Residents have until Friday 31 May to send in their suggestions, either via social media using #SouthendSkatepark or email:
