Burger King Supports Community Project to Build Hamilton Skate Park

Burger King is pleased to show their support for the opening of the community built Greenwood Street Skate Park in Hamilton this Saturday 1st February.

The Skate Park will cater for beginners through to more experienced skaters. The purpose-built Skate Park is located next to the Greenwood Street Burger King restaurant.

Built on land donated by Burger King, the project was a true community effort with the ramps and other skate features built by a team of local Hamilton volunteers and builders.

“Burger King is delighted to be involved in such a fantastic community project,” says Burger King Chief Executive, John Hunter.

“This community investment is just one way Burger King provides support to its younger customers and we’re excited to be involved in providing facilities like this to help keep the local Hamilton community active.”

“We hope this Skate Park will encourage those who have always wanted to try the sport to have a go, and learn from some of the best pro skaters.

“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Hamilton community. Burger King has enjoyed a long-standing association with growing sports in NZ and we know our customers recognise and appreciate our support.”

The opening of the Greenwood Skate Park on Saturday will include competitions and demonstrations from pro-skaters and scooter riders, and is expected to attract interest from the Hamilton skater community and further afield.

Burger King, a substantial supporter of sport in the community is also a sponsor of the Burger King National 3X3 Basketball National Tour currently underway throughout New Zealand. The tour will hit Hamilton’s Waikato University Tennis Courts on Saturday March 15th.
