Timberplay open their first UK skate park


Hull’s Pennine Way is the proud recipient of the UK’s first Timberplay skate park, including state-of-the art pre-fabricated skate elements from Concrete, designed to deliver exceptional ride-ability. The opening on Monday 17th November will see a group of skaters from The Works taking to the concrete to put the park through its paces. Designed by skaters, for skaters, and utilising the best materials for improved performance, this street style park is set to become a skaters’ favourite.

The park has been created using a combination of prefabricated elements, for example the penny, london gap and funbox, and bespoke in-situ features such as the volcano and pool corner. Timberplay worked closely with their Dutch partners, 2Move, a specialist skate design consultancy established by landscape designers with a passion for skating. They utilise Concrete pre-fabricated elements, widely recognised as provider of some of the best performing skate elements across the world. Paul Collings, Managing Director at Timberplay comments on this new opening:-

20141113_144342“Getting stuck into our first skate project has been an incredible experience, gaining a better understanding of what skaters are looking for and seeing the designs become reality. The installation has run relatively smoothly, despite some very trying weather conditions, and the finished area looks very exciting indeed. It will be the icing on the cake to see the park being used the way it should, by skaters of all levels demonstrating their skills.”

The development of Pennine Way was managed by Reform Landscapes in Leeds. They also selected Timberplay to deliver a number of play products, including a challenging Climbing Structure, cradle nest swing and see–saw.
