Skatepark pool

FIRSTLY, I must emphasise I am not against saving the open air pool; but if saving it is no longer an option, how about this for an idea?

Surely (since it is already a concrete structure) the pool could be filled in and modified to create a self-contained skatepark; and perhaps other amenities for the youngsters?

It already has toilets (very necessary for kids wishing to spend a lot of time at a skatepark!) and could have a small cafe, or snack shop.

You could charge the kids a nominal amount (£1 an hour/session, etc) to help with maintenance costs and I'm sure many would use it.

Why consider ruining green space like Kilkenny Field, to build a concrete structure; when there's a ready-made location in need of only some modification!?
