Park information

We worked with Belfast Urban Sports, a charity made up of expert urban sports enthusiasts, to develop Northern Ireland’s first urban sports park and make it a world-class, state-of-the-art facility. The project has three main funders: European Union Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (2007-2013), Better Belfast Landfill Tax Credit Fund, from Bryson Charitable Group and the council's capital programme.

The site was designed and built by Freestyle Skateparks, who have previously worked on some of the UK's leading urban sports parks.
