This sports park for practicing skate, also called “Extreme Park”, was built by the Municipality of Guayaquil during the administration of Mayor Jaime Nebot to provide a safe environment for the practitioners of this sport that initially was born in the streets. Now the young athletes can carry out this activity in a safe place and not in open areas.
The construction began on November 26, 2006 and its inauguration was on December 19 of the same year.
Skateboarding or just skate, is an extreme or risk sport, since it consists in sliding over a wheeled board while carrying out several tricks, raising the board from the ground and making movements in the air. In Ecuador this sport began to grow in the mid 80s.
