Cainta Is Opening A Skate Park Soon
It will definitely add a new facet to the municipality
In a recent Facebook post, Mayor Kit Nieto of Cainta, Rizal, shared the perspectives of one of their newest projects, the One Cainta Skate Park. According to him, the park will commence after 120 days—or 4 months—after his date of posting (September 24).
Looks like we’ll have a few more Margielyn Didal’s (2018 Asian Games Women’s Street Skateboarding Gold Medalist), in the future, thanks to the local government’s overwhelming support for the sport.
There are no further details as of writing, it already looks promising, right?
The idea of having an exclusive space for skateboarders has been lobbied by fans of the sport since time immemorial. So far, the country has five popular skate parks: Palaboy Skate Camp and Lapu-Lapu Skate Park both in Cebu, CamSur Skate Park in Bicol, CoG Skate Park in Pampanga, and Mountain Dew Skate Park in Circuit, Makati. But due to the lack of special places where skateboarders can practice or perform, most of the time, they just make the most out of the available spots here in the metro, such as in Intramuros and UP Diliman.
“This (skateboarding) is big, not just in the Philippines, not just in Asia, but in the entire world,” 19-year-old Didal said in an interview last August. “Skateboard is fun. Skateboard should be everywhere!”
Looking forward to seeing more skate parks soon!
