Mile End Park Youth and Extreme Sports Centres


In 2003 The Environment Trust commissioned Urban Space Management to create a cost effective youth centre in Mile End Park, East London.

Following the success of the youth centre another building was commissioned in 2007 to accommodate the Extreme Sports requirements of the park.

These single-story structures provide interesting and inviting spaces that not only blend in with the surrounding park but create unique indoor areas for kids to connect and play.
