Lichfield’s new skatepark has opened.

Skaters can practice their tricks at the Beacon Park facility, although the landscaping of the area will continue during March.

Councillor Andrew Smith said: “We’re still putting the finishing touches to the skatepark but know that skaters are itching to use the facility so we’ve opened it up to them earlier than planned, while we complete the landscaping.

“We hope everyone enjoys using it, but we would ask everyone to keep to the paths when getting to and from the skatepark to give the grass a good start.”

The ribbon will be cut to mark the official opening on April 5 at 12 noon. This will be followed by a showcase of skateboarding by pro skaters.

    And it only took 7 years (or more) to provide a facility for a City with a population of nearly 33,000. At least those early campaigners will be able to see their children benefit.
