Plans to refurbish a £23,000 skate park in Hitchin have moved a step closer.
Groundwork, working on behalf of North Herts District Council, has shared three potential proposals to renovate the King George V skate park refurbishment.
Users of the park have been able to complete a survey through their smart phones and iPads.
Skate park designers and manufacturers Evolution Skateparks came out as the clear winner, with their plans being voted for by 95 per cent of the 219 who took part in the survey.
The improvements to the skate park, which forms part of the council’s five-year Green Space Management Strategy, began on Monday and are due to be completed later this summer.

We are confident that users will like the new design and continue to enjoy it for many years to come.”
David Trickey from Evolution Skateparks said: “We are delighted that 95 per cent of the users chose our design and that we have been awarded the contract. We look forward to giving the King George V skatepark in Hitchin a new fresh look and something for the users to enjoy.”
