Tired, worn out, old facilities make it harder for people to start or keep doing sport. They can also be more expensive to run and difficult to maintain. That’s why the National Lottery helps projects like Cantelowes Skate Park, Camden.
Local BMX and skateboarders’ group, Cantelocals, helped Camden council to develop Cantelowes Skate Park and it is highly regarded as one of the biggest and best skate parks in the UK. The park offers their riders a state-of-the-art outdoor course to enjoy.
This project received a grant from Sport England which helped develop a massive concrete bowl, ramps, skid rails, practice pavements and a performance platform. The funding also contributed to towards the hiring of a Park Officer to provide coaching for skaters, making this facility accessible for everyone in the community whether they are riders or spectators.
