A neglected skatepark in Buġibba is getting some much-needed TLC from a bunch of die-hard skaters and bikers so they can practice the sport they love.
Malta isn’t the most skater-friendly place and the only way the sport can exist on the island is if the community comes together to get shit done… and that’s exactly what they did.
Bugibba’s makeshift skatepark had been neglected for a while, that is until a group of skater and bikers friends came together to restore it last week.
Though the skatepark is of a poor standard anyways, these individuals have taken it upon themselves to restore it to a usable state.
“We are fixing it, taking money out of our own pockets so that kids and enthusiastic riders alike are able to enjoy riding there. Works are in progress,” a park user said on Facebook.
Given that there aren’t enough skateparks in Malta (especially up north), these die-hard riders didn’t have much choice and had to fork out cash out of their own pockets so that they can enjoy the park for one afternoon.
At least they got some sick pics though…
