It's a shame we weren't contacted before the decision was made to build a skate park in Punggol. We have some serious issues with the skate park. The first issue is the location. It's smack right in the middle of HDB housing estate and we have already had complaints from residents and the police. The sound echoes up and disturbs the residents. Punggol Breeze residents have already put together a petition to have the park removed or relocated.
The second issue is the ramps. The contractor/company that built the park also did not consult the local skateboarding community on what obstacles we want. And as such some ramps aren't correct for the size of the skatepark. There is also insufficient space which makes collisions more likely. With this said it is still great to have a new skatepark! And to see organizations providing facilities for popular new age sports like skateboarding.
