Maroondah Leader: Wheels were in motion with plenty of tricks

By January 30, 2007No Comments

To ensure safe skating, Maroondah City Council has organised two free skate clinics for users of Ringwood’s Skate Park. The Maroondah Leader reported on the success of these clinics and the continued interest in the Ringwodo Sakte Park.

Cr Alex Makin said participants left the clinics with basic skills like standing and balancing on the board, pushing along, doing kick turns and going down a ramp.

Staley’s (the Ringwood Skate Park) has received a tremendous response from Maroondah’s youth and it is encouraging to see such interest in Maroondah’s skating clinics.
