A community led project has revamped the skate park at Longhill Park, giving users a space they can be proud of.

Reported to be the largest in the borough, the skate park in Winkfield is suitable for skateboarding, inline skating and BMX riding. It is managed by Bracknell Forest Council parks and countryside rangers, who supported the project.

Over two days in April, volunteers came together alongside local street artists to create some incredible artwork and refurbish the seating area and surrounding vegetation.

The murals include an impressive colourful tiger and a wolf, fully funded and organised by resident James Maddison.

The park rangers and the Green Active Project were also brought along to coordinate the event.

Stephen Chown, Head of Natural Estates, said: “Thanks to James, his fellow artists, family and friends for their amazing transformation of this community space.

“The project has generated a lot of interest, with artists visiting to paint new murals. The wall was always meant to be a palette for artists to produce a constant flow of new material.

“I hope our young residents are inspired to follow the excellent example set by James. With hard work, drive and dedication you can turn your dreams into reality.

“A special thanks to Green and Active volunteers for their help to enhance our parks and open spaces for people and wildlife.”

James is a professional street artist from Bracknell, who enjoyed spending time at the skate park when he was youg.

His aim is to give young people the same opportunities he had, and a space they can be proud of.
