Delight at opening of new skate park
0 Have your say A new £78,000 facility for young people in Pegswood is proving very popular.
The parish council has worked on the skate park project over the last four years and it was officially opened last Sunday.
The L-shape design in Welfare Park includes a smaller arm – which contains a stair set, half-penny and gap kicker and a number of rollovers – for less experienced skateboarders.
