No Limits

 

Scooters, skates, blades or bikes need 3 things to make them useful. Wheels, a rider and somewhere to ride. In Newark we have no shortage of wheels or riders. However after listening to lots of young people it sounds like there is a real need for an indoor skate park in Newark.

Step forward No Limits.  A group of young people who a vision of a great space with room for all to use the park, run separate  sessions for smaller children and create a team to demo new tricks and skills.

Here is a brief list of some of the aspects that the guys have worked on and looked in to.

Availability of  land

Cost to build

Benefits to Newark including new visitors to the area

Health Benefits for young people

The need for staff members

Reasonable charges

The need to cater for different age groups

Graffiti Wall

Funding streams for the original build cost ie local/national business, sports and arts grants etc

Skate shop for spares and accessories (another income stream)

I think you will agree that the guys have been thorough in the preparation of their ideas. We are looking forward to seeing the results of their research into how many people would use it and volunteer to help run it.

Gary and Jarred have also built their own website to publicise the plans and get feedback from others. Check it out here…http://nolimitskatepark.weebly.com/

Looks great doesn’t it.
