Calne BMX & Skatepark - "The Bowl"
Calne's BMX & Skatepark, known locally as "The Bowl", opened in February 2015 and is located off Station Road near to Castlefields Park.
After many years of fundraising by the Bowl Project Group, work started on the demolition of the old but well remembered Bowl in 2014. The concrete rubble was used for the foundations of the brand new Bowl, the design having been chosen by the Bowl Project members and built by Wheelscape Skateparks.
Since opening The Bowl has been roaring success with all age groups now using the facility. The site is monitored by a new CCTV camera and new young people are now joining some of the original members of The Bowl Project to improve the area further in the addition of a graffiti wall, planting the surrounding area with wild flowers and building a grass sofa.
The Bowl Project's work to plant and landscape the skatepark has been recognised regionally, with the group coming joint-first for Youth Achievement in the 2015 South West in Bloom competition.
