VISITORS to Scarborough have had their first look at the much-anticipated skate bowl.
Scaffolding was removed this week, which revealed the 3.6m-deep international level competition skate bowl at the $100 million foreshore redevelopment.
The bowl is expected to be a main drawcard of the intergenerational plaza, known as the Skate Pit, named after its location at a former dance spot popular with rock ‘n’ roll dancers in the 1950s.
The Snake Pit comprises three areas for skateboarding, scooter and BMX riding, including a quarter pipe, ramps, rails, stairs and hipped flat banks, as well as a 4.4m-high climbing wall and basketball half-court.
The area is expected to open this month.
