By South West England, we mean Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall. The population is over 5 million and BMX riding seems to be extremely popular in this region, so there is, unsurprisingly, a wealth of BMX Parks.
One such track is in Cornwall. The BMX and 4X racing track took a year to build. This is the home of the Duchy Pirates BMX and 4X Racing Club, which were formed in June 2007, and has been going strong ever since. This exciting new track is foundational to the success of BMX riding not only in Cornwall, but in the whole of the South West area. It was initially started out in 2003. Some of the founders include Steven Tonkin and some of his mates. A lot of manpower, machine work, and earth moving went into the construction of this massive skatepark. It is beyond belief just how beautiful it is in pure concrete since it has been built. It is beyond compare to other skate parks in the South West area. Sorry guys, just our opinion.
There are a wide variety of skateparks in the Gloucestershire area like, Kingswood, located in the Southern Playing Fields, Emersons Green found in Betts Green, Oldbury-on-Severn in the Oldbury-on-Severn playing fields, Winterbourne Parish Council in the Recreation Field, Hanham Abbots in Hanham Common, Downend and Bromley Heath in the playing field and open space at rear of Queensholme Drive, Siston at Warmley Forest Park, Pilning and Severn Beach at Cross Hands Road, Bradley Stoke at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre, Pucklechurch at Woodland Skate Park, Alveston at Lime Kiln Fields play area, Patchway at the Tumps, Patchway at the Avenue playing field, Yate at Peg Hill Skate Park, Almondsbury at Easter Compton sk8 Park, Marshfield at Withymead Road Playing Fields, as well as Filton at Elm Field Playing Field.
There is also a great BMX park at Devon called Decoy BMX Skate Park. The local group of extreme sport enthusiasts is back at it again with their latest creation in the Decoy concrete bowl skatepark. The skatepark cost about £100,000, and it’s a dream come true for all the myriad BMX riders and skaters. It is full protected with an acoustic noise barrier, secure fencing, and CCTV to monitor any bad boys! People can be reasonably self-assured that they will be protected by going to the Decoy skatepark. The money, time, and effort invested in this skatepark was astounding. The passion, commitment, and use value that the children had in using it was well worth the investment.
