Create a Skatepark facility in Lossiemouth, Moray.

Lossiemouth Skatepark Initiative was formed in 2014, after community consultations suggested a need for a skatepark facility in Lossiemouth, Moray.  This was outlined in the Lossiemouth Community Action Plan (2015-2020), and we have been steadily working to progress and deliver a skatepark in the town.

Our vision is to create a unique Surf-Skatepark, which would be the only one of it's kind in the North of Scotland.  The idea is to create a skatepark that incorporates flowing lines, carving banks, and accessible bowls, that emulate the feel of surfing waves. The facility would be designed in such a way that it could be used by absolute beginners through to the seasoned professional.

This proposed site is in a central location (Coulardbank Playing Fields), which is adjacent to the playpark, football pitch, scout hut and road with a bus stop situated directly next to it. The site has the advantage of being in a safe location for children to use, and is visible to all other playing field users. The skatepark design will be sympathetic to the local environment and will create an intriguing visual focus on what was otherwise un-used land.

We have a very active community, where sports and recreation are very important factors influencing all ages and abilities. Local and global interest in wheeled sports such as Skateboarding is growing, as is evident with the sport having just been accepted for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The proposed Skatepark facility will not only allow people to learn and participate in Skateboarding and other wheeled sports, but will also allow them to progress in their chosen discipline, as we intend the park to be not only for recreation but for training purposes too.

The proposed skatepark will also be accessible to all ages and abilities, and will be open 24hours a day.

We are looking for support from individuals and businesses, both in the local area and further afield.  If you would like to support our community in achieving our goal to create a skatepark for Lossiemouth, please sign the petition. 

Many thanks in advance,

Lossiemouth Skatepark Initiative.
