Larne Town Park Skate Park underway

Wednesday 22 May 2024

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is delighted to announce that the much-anticipated skate park at Larne Town Park is underway.

Design for Larne Skate Park

The design has created a layout that has interlinking features and multi directional items to ensure as the rider become more proficient - new challenges will become available including transfers, gaps and carve lines.

The skate park will cater for all of the main disciplines of wheeled sport (skateboard, BMX, scooter and inline) along with disabled access requirements.

The facility provides for all age and skill levels, inherent within the design is activities and access for young people regardless of their perceived ability. The nature of this facility provides for a wide range of ages – and not just children! 

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Alderman Gerardine Mulvenna, said: “I am absolutely delighted to hear this fantastic news! The skate park will be a magnificent asset to the park, providing for all age and skill levels. I look forward to seeing it open and in use.”

It is anticipated that work on this project will be completed by September 2024 and is part of the Councils commitment to play through the Out to Play strategy.
