Rothamsted park Skatepark


The current Rothamsted Park Skatepark is nearing the end of its life and requires investment. The Town Council and PARC (Playpark Action Rothamsted Committee) are continuing our successful partnership, working together to redevelop the Skatepark so that it becomes a great community asset. The redevelopment of the Skatepark is a key priority within the Rothamsted Park Management Plan. 

We are delighted that planning permission has now been secured so the project is one step closer! Read our recent press release to find out more.

The overall budget for this new skatepark will be £250,000 with a portion of the funding needing to come from local fundraising. We are currently hoping to deliver the new skatepark by Summer 2024, but this is dependent on reaching our funding target.

Supporting Harpenden's Businesses

Harpenden Town Council has announced a survey for local business owners which it hopes will be the first step in developing a wider support offer to them. The survey will help the Town Council to understand the challenges and issues that local businesses are facing and allow them to develop a support offer that gets to the heart of what is needed.
