A skatepark at Sheringham is looking to ramp up its facilities with a �100,000 makeover.
A new concrete park is being planned, with designs that cater for boarders, skaters and BMX riders, as well as picking up on local materials and architecture.
But organisers want to get the public's views on the scheme, and will be unveiling ideas at a display in the town this month.
The currently wooden skatepark, opened in 1999, costs about �15,000 a year to 'patch up' said its chairman Rob Sayles.
So it was planned to do a more sustainable structure which could also host competitions.
Three skatepark companies had been given a brief on the kind of facilities needed after consulting users, a top price tag of �100,000, and a flavour of the local brick and flint buildings in a bid to blend it in.
