Cologne is without question one of the BMX-bike-skate capitals in Germany. But there is no public (inner-city, free entry) place for BMX, MTB, Inlineskating and Kickboard! What is missing is Cologne is an inner-city public Bike- and Skatepark, which is not only tailored to the needs of small groups or do discriminate particular groups. A public Skatepark for all! BMX-Riders, Skateboarders, Inlineskaters, Mountainbikers and Kickoarders etc. That’s why we (the Cologne BMX-Riders) have joined forces and organized

The existing skate facility in Görlitz-Königshufen was completely redesigned. In our design, the existing asphalt surface and the “ramps” would be gone. We created a Skateplaza! The Plaza consists of two levels, would be completely made of concrete and would have an area of approximately 330m2.
