Jacksons Recreation Ground Skate Park
In 2007 Medway’s first bespoke skate park was
built in Jacksons Field, City Way, Rochester. This project is a
result of a request to Medway Council from a large group of young
people in the Chatham/Rochester area for a purpose-built,
free-to-use and easily accessible wheel park facility for skate
boarding, BMX and in-line skating.
The wheelpark allows BMX, in-line skating and skateboarders
to show off their tricks and even learn the basics. The skate park
has a bowl, street course, seating area, lighting and CCTV.
There is easy access as they are a short walk from
both from both Chatham High Street and Rochester High Street.
There are also buses that go to Chatham Town Centre that pass New
Road, Chatham, and Corporation Street, Rochester.
Cozenton Wheel Park
Construction on the park, situated behind Splashes Leisure
Centre, began in August 2010, after the council was successful
in their bid for Big Lottery Funds. Workshops were held with
BMX bikers, in-line skaters and skateboarders, which enabled them
to share their ideas and feedback to help shape the design of
the park. The park’s unique design uses concrete poured directly on
site allowing for much for more scope and innovation. There is also
a seating area and youth shelter.
This site includes an area for bike trialsthe and is the first
facility in Medway for this extreme sport.
How to get there
Cozenton Wheel Park is situated just off the A2 at the junction
with Bloors Lane, Rainham. It has multiple bus routes within approximately 10 minutes
from various stops in Rainham. It also has easy access on foot from
the high street. The walk is approximately a 10-minute walk from
the bus stop.
