Beginner Area

This is actually the whole skatepark, (but don’t tell anyone ;-)) as even the most experienced skater is still a beginner when it comes to learning new tricks, see what we done there? and we aim to prove a park where everyone can learn and refine something that they can take to bigger and larger skateparks with a new found confidence they might not get in a busy larger skatepark after many visits..
WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY We will be making the whole skatepark Wheelchair Friendly to accommodate WMX users with Ben at the forefront in helping us come up with obstacles

Community Interest Statement

The Skate Farm – Nurturing Positivity Through Extreme Sports

At The Skate Farm, we believe in the transformative power of extreme sports, including skateboarding, scooters, inlines, WMX and BMX specifically skateboarding, to cultivate positivity, personal growth, and community development. Inspired by the metaphor of a farm, where crops are nurtured and grown, we aspire to create a skatepark that serves as a fertile ground for sowing the seeds of positivity among individuals of all backgrounds.

Our primary goal is to provide a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment that encourages users to push their limits, explore their passions, and develop their skills. We understand that skateboarding is much more than just a sport; now in the olympics along with BMX, they are a vehicle for personal expression, creativity, and self-discovery. By offering a well-designed skatepark with diverse obstacles and features, we aim to create a space where users can freely express themselves, build confidence, and learn from one another while developing a positive mindset.

Central to our philosophy is the cultivation of a positive community. We believe that through mutual respect, support, and encouragement, we can foster an atmosphere where users of all ages and skill levels thrive. By organising regular events, workshops, and mentorship programs, we want to provide opportunities for users to connect, share knowledge, and grow together. We will actively promote values such as kindness, empathy, and teamwork, building a community where individuals uplift and inspire one another.

Just as a farmer takes care of their land, we recognise our responsibility to the environment. The Skate Farm is committed to implementing sustainable practices and minimising our ecological footprint. From using renewable energy sources, such as solar power, to help planting trees to replace the wood used to build the skatepark, we strive to be an environmentally conscious skatepark. We actively engage in community initiatives focused on environmental stewardship, such as tree planting and conservation projects, to give back to our surroundings and promote a harmonious relationship between nature and extreme sports.

Education and outreach are integral parts of our mission. We seek to educate the community about the positive impact of extreme sports, dispelling stereotypes and promoting understanding. We collaborate with local schools, youth organisations, and community centres to offer skateboarding programs that emphasise discipline, perseverance, and personal growth. Through these initiatives, we aim to empower individuals, especially young people, with the tools and mindset needed to overcome challenges, set goals, and realise their full potential.

The Skate Farm will not be just a skatepark; it will be a community hub where individuals come together to celebrate the power of extreme sports and the cultivation of positivity. We invite everyone, skaters and non-skaters alike, to be a part of this journey. Together, we can create a vibrant and inclusive community that nurtures and grows the seeds of positivity, leaving a lasting impact on individuals, families, and the wider community.

Join us at The Skate Farm, where we cultivate positivity through extreme sports, just like crops on a farm.
