Regular readers of my blog will know that Dunstable, my nearest local town, is getting a skatepark after a 15 year battle with the council. I’ve decided to document the build, week by week, until it’s completion which is due for early next year.

It’s only been a week so there’s nothing spectacular to see yet. The land has been cleared and they’ve started to dig the drainage. It looks like they’re directing all the drains to a soakaway that will be between the bowl and the plaza section.

This photo is shamelessly stolen from Pete Smith, the man responsible for this happening at all, because I forgot to get one from this angle. Big respect to Pete!

I’ll be posting weekly updates, so come back every Monday to see the park progressing. Exciting times!
