Edinburgh to get skatepark in shopping centre

A new urban sports centre, to be called Transgression Park, is to open in Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal shopping centre featuring a skate park, BMX track and break dancing arena.

The 9020 ft-square park, which cost a “five figure sum” to fit out, will cost users a £25 annual membership fee, as well as an as yet undecided entry charge. It will be open seven days a week from 10am to 10pm.

Director Ken Smith, said “After all the problems there has been with getting a proper skate park in Edinburgh, it is great that someone like Ocean Terminal is showing faith in us and hopefully it will show the council that facilities for these sports are needed.”
