Skatepark Section Closed Due to Safety Concerns

skatepark-1We have spoken to Henley Town Council regarding the closure of sections of the existing Henley Skatepark. They have confirmed to us that the sections have been closed due to safety concerns.  The Council are due to make a decision as to whether these closures are temporary or permanent.  As soon as we hear anything further, we will let you know.

Obviously we do not want people to use equipment that is not safe.  However it is sad because this situation means askatepark-notice reduction in the park’s features that Henley residents can use.  It will take us time to get the new skatepark whilst we raise the funds required, and in the meantime, it would be great if something safe remained open.
