What is the BruBowl?

The BruBowl is an exciting new skatepark proposed for Bruton, Somerset. The multi-wheeled sports facility will accommodate skateboards, bikes, scooters, blades and skates.

Designed and built by skatepark specialists as an upgrade of the current Jubilee Park ramp. It will feature an interconnected street area, ramps, rails and a bowl section. An inclusive destination, celebrating all ages, styles and abilities.

Why do we need it?

Currently there is a gap in our community for a safe, accessible outdoor space, catering for the growing number of young people. The professionally crafted facility of the standard planned is surprisingly easy to learn and progress on. 

The BruBowl will get people outside expending energy and socialising. A proven pillar in any community, a new destination in Bruton for all ages and backgrounds - for many generations to come. No one can outgrow a skatepark.

Why a skatepark?

Skateparks are a great way to build confidence and deliver a sense of achievement and belonging. They are not a competitive environment, there’s no winning but there is definitely a drive to improve and achieve. 

Big kids help little kids and experts encourage and coach beginners - devoid of age barriers. It’s a truly diverse shared space. Skateparks are self-policing in the sense that there are no rules, but there is an etiquette.

”Most communities with new skateparks are surprised to see how popular and positive the facility is and regret not making it larger… 

As a result of teaching at schools and skateparks, I have seen shy kids flourish and vocal kids quite, the odd one out feel part of a team and the natural athlete on a level playing field.”
