PLANS to improve a Winchester skate park will be on public display next week.

Users and residents will have the chance to examine the design for the refurbishment of North Walls Skate Park at a public meeting at Winchester Rugby Club on Monday (Jan 14).

The project will expand the park into the nearby multi-use games area providing equipment for skateboarders, BMX bikers, roller bladders and scooter riders.

It is proposed to replace prefab ramps with more expensive spray concrete ramps because the latter requires much less maintenance, has a longer life span and are easier to use.

The meeting starts at 7pm at the club in North Walls Park.
