A skate park built to replace a previous facility demolished to make way for a new £10.7 million leisure centre taking shape at Sheringham has given the seal of approval by young skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX bikers.
The design of the £150,000, wave-shaped park behind Splash Leisure Centre, on Weybourne Road, was based on a 'wish list' submitted to Dorset-based concrete skate park specialists Maverick.
The park is made up of three main sections, including a main area with steps for 'street riding', as well as quarter-pipe slope at one end and a curved 'bowl' at the other.
Sheringham Skate Park committee chairman Rob Sayles, who has been involved with the park for more than ten years, said the new facility was a 'massive improvement' that had exceeded all expectations.
'The kids absolutely love it and I don't think anyone envisaged how much bigger and better it would be than the old one,' he added.
