The Town Hall of Redován has already given the approval to all the necessary procedures so that the construction of the ‘Skate park’, which the youth of the town has demanded on several occasions to the Consistory, will begin in mid-August. This installation will be held in Plaza Comunidad Valenciana, where it was inaugurated a few months ago the Road Safety Park. “Although at first we had planned to put it in the Francisco Ferrer Park next to the calisthenics, the existing space left no room for future enlargements of any of the facilities,” said Sports Councilor, Ramón López, which has led to Opt for the Plaza Comunidad Valenciana, an enclave that is also central.
The ‘Skate park’ will thus join the Road Safety Park and the football ground court of the square, making this space of the town in a multipurpose place that can be enjoyed by many neighbors and also has perimeter fencing, which Endows more security. The work to be carried out consists of the construction of a fused concrete track of 276 square meters for the interior installation of six multipurpose modules for the practice of ‘BMX’, ‘Rolling’ and ‘Scooter’, homologated according to Regulations UNE EN 14974: 2006 + A1: 2010.
The budget is 21,900 euros and the track is expected to be completed for start-up in early October. Ramón López pointed out that this action gives a response “to the many children and young people who practice this type of sports in Redován, from the ten years onwards”, and has reiterated that if the demand is higher than expected in A first moment “in the Plaza Comunidad Valenciana there is possibility of making enlargements”. Redován thus joins other municipalities in the region with such facilities, such as Cox or Los Montesinos, and prevents lovers of skateboarding in the area from having to travel to these places or to Santa Pola.
