THE skate park in Arroyo de la Represa having been called dangerous due to wear and tear is in the process of being refurbished by the Marbella Council.

It is now used by some 250 people but rather than just skateboarders there is a new generation of BMX bikers and those with scooters who the council say cause more damage to the surface so that a great deal of work is being undertaken to rehabilitate the park.

Firstly the entire surface is being cleaned and repaired with special emphasis being placed on using a different higher resistance mortar to make the surface both safer and less likely to be chipped or damaged.

Metal railings will be replaced or repaired along with any tiles that have been damaged and a total of 1,050 square metres of track will be worked on.

Once all of this is completed, the colour scheme will be changed to neutral tones which are in keeping with modern practice.
