Isle of Wight skate park set to open

Skating fans on Isle of Wight holidays are in for a treat, as the island's first indoor skate park is set to open.

The team behind The Drop are hoping to be able to open the venue on July 7th, with preparations ongoing to ensure they are ready for that date.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, scooter riders, in-line skaters and BMX bikers are all going to be welcome to the skate park to try out their skills on the ramps.

Riverway Industrial Estate in Newport hosts the facility, with supporters of the skate park including John Cattle of skateboarding team Wight Trash, clothing firm Rapanui and Scott Wilson of Degenerate.

The new park is set to be a popular place to go for both locals and those on Isle of Wight holidays when it opens in just a few days time, with skating one of the big pastimes on the island.
