Second LCSD skateboard ground opens to public

Skateboard lovers have another new venue provided by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) to demonstrate their skills following the opening of a skateboard ground at Chai Wan Pool-side Garden.

Members of the public aged eight and above are welcome to use the skateboard ground located at 345 San Ha Street, Chai Wan, free of charge between 7am and 10pm daily, an LCSD spokesman said.

"Adult supervision is recommended for users aged under 12," the spokesman noted.

The construction of the 630-square-metre skateboard ground to replace the old skating rink started in August 2003 and was completed in late July.

Three level zones in the skateboard ground are offered to skateboarders of beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

A grind pipe is installed in the beginner level zone; a wedge, fun box and quarter pipe in the intermediate level zone; and a mini half pipe in the advanced level zone.

"To ensure users' safety, the traffic in the venue is strategically arranged so as to avoid any cross-traffic among the zones while there are parapet planters installed as physical barriers," the spokesman pointed out.

The spokesman added that also for the sake of safety, the equipment in the brightly coloured and organically "greened" venue is securely fixed on the ground and does not have any movable parts.

The first skateboard ground built by the LCSD in Lai Chi Kok Park was opened to the public on June 21.
