Progress on Loanhead skatepark plans

Attempts to bring a skatepark to Loanhead are progressing, according to the community group drawing up the project.

Friends of the Park has been linking up with other community organisations and exploring funding sources for the £130,000 facility.

The group has identified a suitable location adjacent to Loanhead Leisure Centre for a skatepark and continues to work closely with Skateboard Scotland.

Lyndsaye Bain, from Friends of the Park, said: “We have had a few meetings with Loanhead Community Development Association and we are all working together very positively. We are getting a lot of support from them, and they are also positive about taking forward plans for a concrete skatepark.”
