Conservative led Rugby Borough Council has announced today that work on the skatepark for Whitehall Rec has started and looks set to be completed by the end of the year.
Cllr Howard Roberts, Conservative portfolio holder for environment and public realm, said in todays press release, "A skatepark was one of the most requested facilities during the public consultation on the refurbishment of Whitehall Rec, and we've worked closely with the town's skateboarding and BMX communities to design a facility which both meets the needs of skateboarders and BMX riders, and complements the wider surroundings of the recreation ground."

The skatepark has been funded by the council and Section 106 contributions.
A future phase of the refurbishment looks set to include the restoration of the recreation ground's historic bandstand.
