An artist impression of the skatepark which could be built and opened in Hayes by the summer
HAYES Skatepark is off the drawing board and could be on the ground this summer.
The 750sq m concrete park in the Hayes Hawks BMX Club compound in Lake Farm Country Park, Dawley Road includes all the must-have features and a large bowl section.
The project will now go out to tender and construction will take about three months.
The park's designers, Wheelscape, held a consultation and people submitted their thoughts on a selection of possible layouts via the park's website.
Wheelscape's Max Fyfe said: "A close community consultation process is essential for the long-term success of the facility. It's great to work with such a committed group."
Hillingdon Community Trust has committed £50,000 to the project, and Hillingdon Council will contribute £130,000. The Friends of Lake Farm and Hayes Hawks have also been heavily involved.
