An Exmouth skatepark will soon be upgraded to become an Olympic standard training facility thanks to a whopping £365,000 cash injection.
East Devon District Council (EDDC) is now working in partnership with Exmouth Town Council as well as a local consultation group to improve Phear skate park for visitors and residents alike.
EDDC has contributed £240,000 towards the project and the town council has agreed to allocate £125,000 towards it, making sure all the requests made by the consultation group,(made up of 30 local skatepark users) are met.
The construction phase is expected to take approximately 21 weeks to complete and are expected to be completed by the end of October.
The park will accommodate people of all ages and abilities. It allows newcomers to learn and develop as well as having extremely technical sections that will engage and test competent riders. There really is something for everyone!
