The city has been without a skate park since 2013, but that wait is closer to ending with construction starting on a new skate park on West Terrace.
In a recent Facebook post on his official page, Premier Steven Marshall said the local skating community has played a key role in shaping the vision for the new city skate park.
Commenting on the same Facebook post, Rachel Sanderson, Member for Adelaide, said, “A new city skate park is what the community and I have been advocating for, for many many years. Thrilled the Marshall Liberal Government is delivering this project with the city of Adelaide. Can’t wait to see the finished product later this year.”
The skate park will cater to all levels of experience, with one section for beginners, and a challenging advanced section down the other side.
There will be all sorts of skate park obstacles for boarders to test their skills, such as rails stairs and street pyramids.
The project is expected to be ready for use mid 2021, which is sure to be great news for city skaters who have waited over seven years for a place to test their skills.
