Te Pai Skate Park extension Construction to begin

Following design approval in June 2004, construction of the skate park extension is due to start next week and should be completed by 30th March 2005.

The concept for Te Pai Skate Park extension was designed in association with Chey Ataria, Isthmus Group, Cheapskates West and local skateboarders.

Three BMX elements on the Lincoln Road side of the park have been removed due to high construction costs with the option of adding them later as budget allows.

Stairs, ledges and ramps are part of the extension along with a brand new half pipe and curved grind boxes.

The summerslamz skateboarding competition will be held in conjunction with the official opening on 2 April 2005.
