Tricks and flips will be honed at extended Christchurch skate park

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Skateboarders will have more room to practise their ollies, board slides and toe flips following a decision to extend a Christchurch skate park.

The small St Albans park will be enlarged following concern among local residents that it does not cater to beginner skateboarders and scooter users.

Over the next nine months, a low pyramid, “wallie” ledge and a rectangular grind rail for tricks will replace the area’s double rollover bumps, while a cork-type surface will protect the skate area from gravel.

A small barrier section at the top of a quarter pipe will also protect pedestrians using the nearby path.

Work will begin in October and is expected to be finished by April.
