The 1st day of November and Portobello Community Incorporated were on a mission at the Portobello Domain skate park. The working bee had several tasks including replacing the plywood and painting the new ramps, giving the old tennis court fence a coat of paint and installing a recently purchased half-pipe. Helped with some warm weather, plenty of hard-working volunteers and a great morning tea at the pavilion everyone really got stuck in. Special thanks to Portobello Inc. Deputy Chairman Geoff Sheridan from Toll New Zealand for providing a much-needed truck to get the half-pipe on site.
With Portobello Community Inc purchasing the half-pipe and funding half of Fulton Hogan’s road marking costs for the park, this project has created a great asset for the community and its families. Its was fantastic to see so many people and children turn up on Saturday and pitch in to make this project really happen. We’re looking forward to the grand opening on the 9th of November during the Portobello Paddock Pursuit.
