LOOE SKATE PARK
The International Olympic Committee have approved Skate Boarding as an official Olympic sport and will in Tokyo 2020 take its place alongside BMX as a Gold Medal Event.
At the request of Looe action group Looe Development Trust have undertaken to provide a dedicated Olympic Standard Facility within Looe, so that potential local Skate Boarders can practice, refine and develop their skills and who knows we might even find a gold medalist from Looe?
Following a generous offer of land from St Martins Church, Looe Development Trust in conjunction with specialist Skate Park design company “Maverick Industries” and local Skaters have commenced work on developing an exciting design and to provide a high class Park.
A spokesman for Looe Development Trust said “It is early days but initial conversations indicate that the proposed Park is broadly supported and subject to planning consent and raising the necessary funds we would hope to have this facility up and running for 2018”
