Skate Jam events for Hillingdon's young people

News release: 15/8/18 - Hillingdon Council is inviting young residents to its Skate Jam events on Thursday 30 August at Fassnidge Park, Uxbridge, and Friday 31 August at Field End Recreation, South Ruislip, to celebrate the opening of two new skate parks in the borough.

Skate park

The council has invested more than £200,000 in a new park at Field End Recreation Ground following a request from a local skate group, and has refurbished the existing skate park at Fassnidge Park. 

The opening events will feature demonstrations from top UK professional BMX and skateboard riders, and local young people can enjoy free group coaching sessions to learn the basics or perfect their skills.

The new concrete skate parks will offer various circuits, ramps and jumps at different levels for skating enthusiasts.

Councillor Ray Puddifoot, Leader of Hillingdon Council, said: "We are really looking forward to the Skate Jam events and hope that local residents will come along to enjoy skating demonstrations and enjoy a variety of learn to ride sessions. In addition to our free outdoor gyms and award-winning green spaces, the skate parks will provide a new space for young people to socialise and learn new skills."  
The events will be held from 10am to 4pm, and the Mayor of Hillingdon will officially open the skate parks to the public.
