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.
