Built for both the local community and those from further afield, then project will provide the chance for users to participate in many different sports including skateboarding, climbing and bouldering.

Each floor will be distinctive and offers a unique experience for visitors. The centre will offer nearly 600sqm of climbable spaces and the ground floor will also host a competition sized boxing ring.

The Urban Sports Park is managed by Shepway Sports Trust (SST), the Folkestone-based independent charity established to encourage participation and excellence in sport.

The scheme has been designed by the award winning Guy Hollaway Architects and will be delivered using various construction techniques including timber and concrete surfaces for the skate floors, combining the need for durability and flexibility as skating trends evolve.
