Multi-Story Sports Park is an Urban Youth Sanctuary
Guy Hollaway Architects has designed a leisure space that could potentially be built on the banks of the English Channel
The world’s first multi-story skatepark has been proposed for a 1,000 square meter site at Folkestone in the U.K. It is part of a new development for the Roger De Haan Charitable Trust that has been designed by Guy Hollaway Architects. The high-quality leisure space, known as Folkestone Sports Park, would offer a range of urban sports.
Young people who live locally would be given access at heavily subsidised rates, which would likely encourage many more to attend and try out a new sport.
The skatepark, the world’s first multi-story facility of its kind, would add to the ever-expanding skate and BMX scene in Folkestone and act as an attraction for people to visit and enjoy. The Folkestone Sports Park would accommodate a variety of popular urban sports at beginner, intermediate and competition levels including skateboarding, BMX-ing, rollerblading and scootering, whilst also attracting trials riders and climbing enthusiasts. The proposal also has the potential to provide an underground boxing ring.
