Community Skatepark Development

Mumbles Skatepark Association By Mumbles Skatepark Association

The Mumbles Skatepark Association (MSA) is raising funds and support to ensure the new skatepark is open to all, accessible and maintained, so it can be enjoyed by the whole community.

Black Pill Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The site benefits from a direct bus route to Blackpill from Swansea’s Central bus station, plus the promenade has a cycle path, which is part of the National Cycle Network, which adds to its accessibility and supports the green agenda. The site already benefits from family oriented footfall and this will benefit the skatepark in terms of cementing it as a family based facility. In addition to supporting the annual maintenance of the skatepark area, we aim to provide additional extras in support of the new skatepark, including memorial benches, family seating, bike racks and shaded areas. We will also work closely with the Mumbles Community Council to arrange and support annual events/contests

What we'll deliver:

  • Deliver 2 memorial benches within the first full year of the skatepark, following build
  • Hire sound equipment, port-a-loos & gazebos to support an annual event, plus ensure free water is available to all
  • Deliver bike racks to support accessibility, green travel and bike safety

Why it's a great idea:

The project aims to ensure the community is fully engaged with the skatepark and it has a true sense of community ownership, which in turn will increase foot fall to the park and increase health and wellbeing amongst users and families

Steps to get it done:

  • Raising sufficient funds to enable the provision of additional bike racks
  • Raising sufficient funds to enable the provision of additional benching
  • Agree installation date
  • Realise installations
