Crowdfunding for Wendover Skate Park

There is a severe lack of facilities for young people in Wendover and we are keen to provide a skatepark as a focal point.


You can support us now by visiting our CrowdFunding page:


Why are we crowdfunding?

The Parish Council provides many services to local people, which is paid for as an additional amount of money on the Council Tax bill - known as the Precept. We work hard to keep the Precept as low as possible, without cutting services and keeping a balanced budget. We intend to build this skate park without having to raise any costs for residents who are already suffering due to the cost of living crisis. We have raised money from other funders but are not quite there yet and your support will help us to deliver this service without having to increase the burden on the local purse.

How we’ll spend the money raised

All money will go directly into building the skatepark and not the general council budgets. We are seeking for an organisation to match the funding we raise and we will close the CrowdFunder once we reach the limit.

Community impact

There is currently a severe lack of facilities for young people in Wendover and this was highlighted in the responses to a recent survey. There is a strong desire from the Parish Council to provide a suitable facility for this demographic which is currently very much under-represented in terms of amenities in Wendover. Young people need safe places to meet, exercise and be creative - Wendover skatepark will be that place and provide a focal point for social interaction. With physical and mental health issues becoming increasingly important for today’s youth, it’s time to offer a greater number of healthy, outdoor choices. With skateboarding now an Olympic sport participation in the sport has never been as high as it is now. Whilst it will be called a skatepark it will be suitable for all wheeled sports such as scootering, BMXing and rollerblading. Careful design of the skatepark will mean it is suitable for all ages and abilities.

As the facility will be free to use it is accessible to everyone. Wheeled activities in a carried out in a skatepark is much safer than in the streets, currently the only option for users in Wendover is to use private premises (such as School Car Parks and Industrial unit parking) which creates friction in the community. Skateparks support vibrant, healthy communities, just like many other sports facilities.

The adopted Wendover Neighbourhood Plan specifically refers to a Skatepark as one of the projects to be delivered.
