The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Rob Wilson @ The Boneyard: August 2015
The 'Boneyard' Skatepark, based at Canal Side in Tattenhall, is a jewel in Tattenhall's Crown for our younger residents.
The Skatepark began as the dream of one Tattenhall resident in providing her son and other young people with the reality of a safe place in which to skate. It has since become one of the best known (and oldest running) facilities of its kind in the country.
We exist to provide a safe and welcoming place for people to practise the sports of BMX riding, Skateboarding, Rollerblading and Scootering. We also run schools in these various activities which develop learning skills, inspire confidence and encourage fellowship. With the summer holidays in full swing, there are lots of activities planned so watch the calendar on Tattenhall Online — during the week beginning 10 August, for example, we have BMX, Rollerblade and Skateboard activities.
Occasionally, we also host graffiti workshops, jams and other events which are open to the public.
We pride ourselves on our community spirit and new individuals are always welcome. The Boneyard is run by practitioners of the various sports for whom we cater. We have former professionals on our management committee and we maintain an active part of the action sports industry. We are a non-profit organization.
