Dream skatepark opens in Birzebbuga

 

A dream for young people in Birżebbuġa was realised today with the official opening of a €300,000 skatepark through an initiative spearheaded by the President’s Trust Foundation and backed by the Ministry of Tourism and local businesses.

 

The project was proposed to the Trust in 2016 by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, which communicated the strong desire of young people to have a skatepark in the village which would provide them with a social and athletic outlet.

 

The Trust immediately set about working on the idea and through collaboration with various entities and businesses – which either donated funds or provided their services for free – drew up plans for an area that enables youngsters to practice and showcase their cycle riding and skateboarding skills.

 

The skatepark, which has been developed following International Standards, will be maintained by the Birzebbuġa Local Council, while Aġenzija Żgħażagħ will provide youth workers to assist with its upkeep.
