Client: Groundwork East
Site: Norton Common, Letchworth Garden City
Norton Common had an existing concrete skatepark that was past its safe use. Groundwork East, working with East Herts. District Council, appointed CANVAS to consult with the local groups for the design and construction of their new park.
The original skatepark has been considered in the overall design and worked upon to create an area which is used as one seamless space, acquiring immediate critical acclaim from client and local skaters/riders.
The design, which was developed closely with the consultation groups, includes: A hipped bowl; break-out mini-ramp; low-level street area; Barcelona-inspired ledges and banks.
