The skatepark in Weybourne Road, Sheringham, has finally reopened following months of closure.

Called The Strip, the skatepark was closed earlier this year while The Reef leisure centre was being built at the same site. 

Karl Read, North Norfolk District Council's leisure and locality services manager, said: “We’re glad to re-open The Strip for use – there’s certainly been a lot of excitement locally about the return of a skate offering and we’re happy that people can enjoy it once again.”

The skatepark has more than 20 features including six quarter pipes, flat banks, rails and a set of stairs.

Virginia Gay, the council's portfolio holder for leisure, wellbeing and culture said: "Such good news that The Strip is back and better than ever, it's been much missed and we hope that skaters in Sheringham enjoy it once more."

The skatepark is at the edge of The Reef's car park, which is now being tarmacked. Current access to The Strip is via the Sheringham Recreation Ground car park.
