Skate plaza opens at barrage

Help

A skate park has opened at the barrage in Cardiff Bay.

The Skate Plaza has been designed to replicate features from famous skating locations around the world, and follows the example of the Barcelona skate park.

Skateboarders in the Cardiff and south Wales area have been involved in its design and construction.

"Their input has been vital in the successful completion of the park," said Councillor Nigel Howells, Cardiff Council's executive member for sport leisure and culture.

Some of the first youngsters to try out the park gave their reaction.
