Skate Parks are becoming an increasingly popular and common facility throughout Ireland due to the resurgence of wheel sports. Such as Inline Skating, skateboarding and BMX biking. As with fixed equipped playgrounds it is recommended to ensure that a post installation inspection is recommended to ensure that the skate park conforms to all the latest standards and guidelines in EN14974 and that the skate park user can enjoy it safely.
It is important that these inspections are carried out on an annual basis by a competent inspector. As well as highlighting problems with wear and tear and vandalism at an early stage and enabling maintenance to be conducted promptly written inspections can also be used in court in defence of any claims which may arise from injuries within the skate park.
