The state-of-the-art indoor BMX and skatepark is set to open in the borough next month.
The £60,000 park will be the first in the borough, based at Junction 4 off the M65, and it aims to become a regional centre for the sports.
To mark its location, the skatepark will be called Junction4.
The multi-purpose stadium will be used by hundreds of youngsters a week on BMX bikes, skateboards, roller blades and scooters. At the moment, the nearest skateparks are in Preston and Manchester.
The park is at the former Blackburn Rovers Sports Academy building near Darwen Vale School.
