Isle of Wight holiday could feature skate park reopening

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays this weekend can attend the reopening of a skate park on the island as part of their trip.

The Isle of Wight Council has announced that new ramps at West Wight Skate Park are ready to be used, with an opening ceremony planned for June 19th 2010.

Skateboarding competitions will be held, so families with skater kids could find it to be an ideal day out as part of their Isle of Wight holiday.

Novelty prizes will be on offer for the best skateboarders on show during the day.

Councillor Clive Fleury, the project's coordinator, said he is looking forward to the opening event.

He added: "The enthusiasm of the skate park users of all ages has made the hard work put in by everyone concerned really worthwhile."

Following a trip to West Wight Skate Park, families on Isle of Wight holidays can check out the other attractions in Freshwater, such as Afton Marsh Nature Trail or the village's beach.
