Paul and Ted’s success over extension to Southfields skatepark Charnwood Borough Council is investing £70,000 to extend the skatepark in Southfields Park. The work is due to be completed before Easter. Local Southfields councillor Ted Parton said: “The skatepark is already popular with residents and its extension will be a popular move”. Beginner inline skaters, skateboarders and BMX bikers will be encouraged to make use of the improved facility. The skatepark extension is part of a project to revamp the park which is off Leicester Road. In 2018 the Council installed a new outdoor gym and improved the paths. There are also plans in the future to add a new entrance to the park. The existing skatepark is expected to be open throughout most of the works however there may be some disruption to the access at times. Members of the public were asked to give their views on the plans to revamp the park during a public consultation in Spring 2018. “As local councillors, we had been lobbying hard for me to be vested in Southfields Park, given the extent to which it is used by residents in the ward”, added Paul. “It is immensely satisfying to see that this effort is now paying off and that work has now started on the skatepark”.
