Wiltshire Council, working closely with the local steering group, appointed CANVAS to partner with them and in the design and construction of their new town centre skatepark. The steering group had a strong vision for what they did and didn't want from the fundamental design of their new park, with intricate detail.
The concrete replacement has been designed to have plenty of elements where you can simply turn up and have fun, progressing with the long! flat bar and block and low-level, mellow ledges. Big street elements are relatively rare and were a must for the park.
Complimenting the traditional street elements are the central diamond and transitions with a pool coping corner, ensuring Fifth skatepark is a park for all. It is expected to host the finale of the popular 'Wiltshire Skate Series' in 2017.
