Community efforts were ramped up as the £20,000 Tubbenden skateboard and BMX park was declared open by youngsters who helped create it.
More than 30 people attended the opening ceremony at Tubbenden Lane including teenagers Bethany Archer and Nathan Bird who took it upon themselves to combat anti-social behaviour in the area.
Bethany said: “When we spoke to the young people in the parks and outside a local supermarket, it became clear that they meant no harm but were simply looking for somewhere to practice their biking and skateboarding skills.”
The park, funded by the Safer Bromley Partnership, has quarter pipes at its ends, a spine ramp and a driveway.
