New skate park open for holidays

THE Bray Park skate and pump track at Boyne Island reopened this week and is already proving a huge hit with locals.

Designed by Convic Pty Ltd, the new facility is fitted out with a half pipe, a mini bowl and quarter pipes.

The project is part of a $985,000 upgrade to the area which includes the upgrades to the skate park as well as a pump track around the outside.

Hugo Landman, 16, thought the new skate park was "brilliant” but commented that it could use more shade from the sun.
