Dover District Council (DDC) has completed an £8,500 programme of repairs and refurbishment to the Pencester Gardens skatepark, including giving it a colourful new look!

The work included renewing the areas at the base of the ramps to make it more durable and replacing some of the corroded panels.

For visitors to Pencester Gardens the most obvious sign of the works is the bold new paintwork!

The skatepark includes a range of ramps, pipes, steps, and rails suitable for skateboard, roller blade and scooter users.

Cllr Oliver Richardson, DDC’s cabinet member for corporate property, said: “Pencester Gardens is one of our most popular skateparks and needed a makeover, so it’s great to see the facility back in full use and with a fresh new look.

“Some of the young skateboarders like the new look so much, they’ve asked if we can paint their bedrooms!”
