A new petition to refurbish and modernise a skatepark has attracted more than 1,000 signatures.
The concrete skating area in Aberdeen’s Westburn Park was built in the 1970s for the use of skateboarders, bikers and rollerbladers. But, over the years, the site has gradually fallen into a state of disrepair.
The Friends of Victoria and Westburn Park group now hopes to bring the site into the 21st Century, and has already gained more than 1,300 signatures backing the proposal.
Peter Stephen, chairman of the group, said it is hoped an application will be lodged with Aberdeen City Council later this year.
If plans are approved, Mr Stephen hopes the project could be “one of the best outdoor facilities in the UK”, providing young people in Aberdeen with a place to play and exercise for years to come.
