What is the hardest thing about skate boarding?
Dawberry Fields Skate Park was opened in 2010!
It got very scruffy over the next decade, and in 2023 had a make over thanks to the Friends of Dawberry Fields Park, a grant from Birmingham City Council and local artist Tom.
Here are the names of some basic skateboarding tricks. Do you know what any of them mean? If not, what’s your best guess?
(Turn right and go up the hill towards the top of the park).
Why not hum your favourite tune all the way to the next bench?
If you can’t think of one, The Friends of Dawberry Fields Park have been known to sing the chorus from the famous Beetle’s tune
“Strawberry Fields Forever ” whilst litter picking or doing
conservation tasks, but changing ‘Strawberry’ to ‘Dawberry’.
If you know the tune, why not sing along…
“Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to DAWBERRY fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
DAWBERRY fields forever.”
