A Glasgow skateboard park has reopened after being refurbished with £2000 worth of steel safety panels.

The facility, which is situated in Barachnie Park on Mount Vernon Avenue, originally opened a year ago and cost £120,000 to build.

However, Glasgow city council quickly realised that the undercarriage of the park was becoming a ‘magnet’ for youths and anti-social behaviour.

After extensive local consultation, the council decided to refurbish the facility’s undercarriage with steel safety panels, which have been covered in artwork from local teenagers, and has now officially reopened the skatepark to the public.

The panel artwork was the result of a series of local workshops organised to enable local youngsters to gain a sense of ownership and pride in the skatepark.

Opening the revamped facility, councillor Euan McLeod said: “The changes that have been made to this facility are a great example of the city council working in partnership with the local community and the kids that make such good use of the site, listening to local concerns and taking action to resolve anti-social behaviour problems.”
