This is the first glimpse of a brand new skate park that will open next month.
Park designers, Four One Four, who have previously worked on some of the country’s most successful skateparks and training facilities, shared the footage of the incredible transformation.
The original skate park was demolished last April amid the coronavirus pandemic to make way for a 250-bed rainbow hospital with the promise it would come back, bigger and better.

The new skate park is intended to accommodate all types of wheeled sports including scooters, skateboards, BMX and inline skates and is expected to host competitions in the near future.
Reveal the completion of the work, Four one four skateparks Said on social media: “And that’s pretty much done in Deeside! The team broke everything and we think the locals are going to have fun with the new setup!
“For all of you, the park will be open to the public on January 10.”
Daniel Mapp-Jones, Service Supervisor, previously shared his enthusiasm on behalf of the entire Aura team, saying, “The return of the skate park is an exciting project that I am very happy to be a part of.
“We can’t wait to welcome the skate park community back to Deeside Leisure Center and can’t wait to see what everyone thinks about the new design.

“The success and coverage of the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year will undoubtedly help the sport grow and Aura Wales is very happy to be a part of it.”
Most of the centre’s facilities have now reopened except for the ice rink – which will not reopen until 2022 due to its continued use as a COVID-19 vaccination site.
The library and cafe reopened in October and recruitment recently took place for a 456-meter inflatable theme park that will be the first attraction of its kind in North Wales.
The opening date of the park has not yet been announced.
