THIS IS PROJECT #SAVESTONERIDGE Vol.1 - YOU CAN HELP. A skatepark based at the Stoneridge shopping center is due for demolition. The closing of this Skate Park will cause a negative effect on extreme sports in South Africa. Here is a short message from a small number of people that use the park.
A little while ago we visited Skatepark Waalhalla in Nijmegen for the first time. From the outside it looked promising because this wasn't just an old abandoned sports hall. The size of the building was huge and the roof was high. What caught our eyes when stepping inside was the full on bar. Beers on tap, hard liquor and of course other healthy drinks as well. We checked the shop which was big but a bit unorganised. It would freak the Coach out if he would have to work in there but the collection of bikes, blades and boards was there. The chill area was probably a bit on the chill side as parents still had their jackets on and those who brought a beanie were lucky they took it with them. Not that it was freezing, but if you just sit there for hours waiting for the kids to be finished it can get cold. But we brought the bike so that complaint didn't come from our side.
The park felt brand new. They had just relocated from down the road which meant they had to start all over again. That's a good thing on one side because you can build whatever you want, but
