Wheeled Sports Facilities in the Borough of Eastleigh
The wheeled sports facilities are designed to provide
sport activity for young people and usually include young people's
seating areas. They aim to offer a stimulating challenge to
those children and young people who have a keen interest in any of
the wheeled sports.
Each site provides a localised area where young people can
safely congregate and entertain themselves without the fear of
being ‘moved on’ by the Police or asked to leave by local
residents. The sites provide access to a variety of
recreational equipment, which has been chosen specifically to
provide stimulating and challenging recreational opportunities for
local young people. All the wheeled sports areas were
developed in partnership with local young people and workshops were
held to select the equipment and design of the facility for
each site. Residents and stakeholders were consulted on these
proposals prior to the installation of these facilities.
