Aberystwyth Town Council secured a Big Lottery Fund grant for the revamp of Parc Kronberg skateboard park. The state of the park had been declared as dangerous, with many in the skating community expressing their frustration at the lack of facilities.
The planned revamp was great news for the local community, with plans to transform the existing run-down metal skatepark and surrounding wasteland into a space that incorporates a new state-of-the-art skatepark, walkways, bike paths, community seating and a children's play park.
CED Stone Commercial Division worked in conjunction with Freestyle Skateparks to specify the skate benches for this exciting park. Various materials were discussed, with a blue-grey Chinese granite being the final choice.
Over 600m2 of Blue-grey granite paving and 265lm of black basalt kerb was supplied for the walkway leading to the park.
Polished blue grey granite benches can be found along the walkway which is encouraged for both seating and skating. Further walkways feature several solid curved sinuous benches made in several sections.
CED Stone Landscape Depot also supplied CEDEC Red and Gravelsafe.
