As an interim solution pending the construction of a permanent skate park on the Bevegemse Vijvers site In the summer of last year, a pop-up skate park was set up on the shuttle car park (side of the railway verge) opposite the OCMW in the Deinsbekestraat. While the mobile skate ramps were subsequently stored in the urban warehouse, this parking is now being used intensively by commuters after the corona times and the youth and sports service went looking for an alternative location to set up a temporary mobile skate park. .
In doing so, they arrived at the square at the end of Lijsterbesstraat/Sint-Niklaasplein in the Bijloke district† This former sports field is securely fenced off with posts and has a flat surface of concrete pavers in good condition. The square is owned by the Denderstreek Social Housing Company, which is prepared to make it available. The devices will first be subjected to a risk analysis on site by an authorized employee of the city of Zottegem. After that, the skaters will be able to enjoy themselves on the skate ramps from July 1 to October 1.
