On the back of serious questions being raised over the future of BaySixty6 late last year (go sign the petition if you haven't already), I was having a conversation with some friends about the planned re-vamp of the Kingston Skatepark.
I got an email reply today from the Project Co-ordinator for the King's Park Project who had this to say:
"Yes, the current skate park is undergoing redevelopment.
The work should start by the end of January and we should have a brand new concrete skate park in spring.
We can't release the plans yet, because they are still being worked on. As soon as they are official, we will be posting them unto Kcafe webiste."
You may also want to keep an eye on this thread over at the SIDEWALK forum, it'll probably get updated a lot faster.

I'll also attempt to post any news regarding Kingston or Bay on here.
Let's hope this is just the first piece of a long line of good news for UK skateboarding this year.
