The first design workshop happened at Quad today, with the Council, Rollersnakes and Hooked - as well as one of the design team from Freestyle to discuss the designs with the people.
Well the initial concepts were revealed to everyone, and we had some great thoughts and feedback. If you couldn't make it, here's what was discussed.
Scheme initial concept 1
Everyone has looked over the concepts, filled out a form with their ideas / comments / criticism / scribbles. If you've not had a say, don't forget there's another session on Wednesday 15th of September at Rollersnakes. 5pm - 8pm.
Loads of the skate crew gave their thoughts
Really busting out the ideas... over tea
The BMXers had some ideas
Sizing it up to scale
This part is rad
Discussions over sandwich
Steve from Freestyle chats through some build options with visuals
Checking out the concepts
Cut and paste ideas
There were too many thoughts and ideas going round to chat about here, but once Wednesday's session is over, Freestyle will collate all the feedback and see what elements and ideas we're dealing with, and how they can be incorporated to get us the best park around. It's hard to please all user groups, as we all have different size wheels.
One thing to note is that the quality of Freestyle's finish came under question, and they'll be putting down a sample to check we're all happy with it. We don't want it to be too smooth like Chesterfield and Steve from Freestyle is more than happy to ensure we get a finish we're absolutely stoked on.
Keep your eyes peeled - remember your thoughts count, so get them heard by coming on wednesday to consultation number 2.
Cheers to everyone who came today.
