Skate park one of the region's best used facilities
GLADSTONE'S skate park and climbing wall facility at Memorial Park is one of the most used community assets in the region.
Every day after school and at weekends there are kids riding bikes, scooters, skateboards trying the darnedest not to land on their unprotected arms, legs and heads.
Most wear helmets, but there are one or two who take their chances.
However very few bother with elbow and knee protectors, and a quick look around can see the results of one or two scrapes with the unforgiving concrete.
What better way to spend an afternoon after school!
