Council to look at developing skate park at Wetlands in Tralee

Kerry County Council is to look at developing a skatepark at the Wetlands, Tralee.

The issue was raised at the recent meeting of Tralee Municipal District by Sinn Féin Councillor Toireasa Ferris, who asked that an estimate be prepared on the proposal.

She said that such a facility in Tralee was long overdue, as a group of young people had tried to develop one 12 years ago, but it didn’t materialise.

She said her Sinn Féin colleague Councillor Pa Daly had visited a skatepark in France, and had pictures of it which he would pass onto the council.

Councillor Ferris hopes such a low-cost facility could be developed at the Wetlands.
