Welcome to Bishopston Skatepark Project
Bishopston Skatepark Project is creating a pump track for people to meet, socialise, and have fun in a safe, free-to-use environment. If you would like to learn more about pump tracks, go to our about page.
We have been working for over two years to show the genuine need for a facility like this in Bishopston. Recently we partnered with Bishopston Community Council & local groups to get this space built. This group is known as Copley Common Regeneration. Scroll down to learn more.
Copley Common Regeneration
The Community Council, Bishopston Skatepark Project and other community groups have come together to create Copley Common Regeneration Project.
This project accommodates the wider plans for the area, including the pump track, outdoor classrooms, wildflower reserves and more.

On 27th February, we trimmed the bracken & bramble and coppiced the willow at the pump track site. We then created an eco habitat with the logs.
We gathered a crew of local landscapers from Hazelwood Landscaping, D Wisby Gardens & Landscapes along with a few community volunteers to help with the mammoth task of clearing the overgrown site. The volunteers were socially distanced throughout the day.
We managed to clear the site with a fantastic effort from everyone involved! This means we are now ready for 3D designs to be drawn up for planning permission.
