Hayle skatepark opens

Hayle's long awaited skate park and bowl has finally opened to the public. See our photos from the event.

Back in 2001 local skaters, fed up of being reprimanded for skating on the streets, approached the council for a skate park in Hayle.

Finally, on Wednesday 13 September 2006 their dreams were realised when the new Hayle Skate Bowl opened to the public.

Skaters and local people have lobbied for many years for a skateboard park after a twelve year old boy died while playing on a micro-scooter in Hayle.

The finished bowl is considered by some skateboarders, who were consulted during the building process, as one of the best in the UK.

Alongside the recreational facilities the former Tourist Information Centre located on the Recreation ground has been converted into a café and management centre.

The skate bowl, along with a pitch and putt area and a boules court,  have been jointly funded by Penwith Council, the Sports Fund and the Community Safety Fund.
