A pretty large crowd assembled at the St Kilda Skatepark on Saturday, after the fences came down and the ceremonial ribbon was cut on Friday morning.

It was fun to hit it in the late afternoon, as has been the custom until now, seeing as the park hasn’t been skateable during the daytime most days while council workers and contractors finished off the landscaping to hand over the site.

I arrived on the Saturday in the late afternoon and evidently just missed seeing Jesse ‘Red’ Noonan grinding halfway around the bowl into an uncomfortable slam and a bit of a sit down.

Keegan Palmer had the crowd psyched on his super fast lines and gnarly mc twist, something you don’t see in bowls very often. Just turned ten, he is apparently the under 18 bowl champion and will get better and better. Nice to have someone young and fearless to show you the lines.

Renton Millar has had alot to do with getting the park built and his father Keith has also been instrumental in garnering support from the locals and standing up to the vocal objectors at council meetings over the past few years.

Brent and Mouse, two locals you will see down at the park pretty often have also been very active in helping to get it over the line.

After more than a decade of lobbying, St Kilda has a skate park and it is being ranked among the world’s best.
十年間以上のファイトが終わって、セントキルダにスケボーパークができ、世界トップのひとつと評価されている。

The facility, which will be officially opened on March 22, is part of the $4-million transformation of Marina Reserve into a family park.

Los Angeles-based professional skater Eric Koston last week took to the skate park for a preview session and gave it a rave review.
ロスアンジェリーズをベースにしてるプロスケータ、エリックコストンがセントキルダのパークをテストしたときに、高評価をあげた。
“The skate park is pretty up there with the best in the world,” Koston said. “It’s amazing, it flows really well and as long as you can stay on your board you could skate here forever.”

コストンが言うと『このパークは本当に世界最高のパークのひとつ』 素晴らしいです。フローがよくて、ボードから落ちなければ、ずっと滑り続けられる。
Professional skater and St Kilda local Renton Millar, who was part of the group that spearheaded the campaign for the park, said it was a great feeling to see the park completed.
ローカルのプロスケータレントンが言う。『パークが完成されるのを見て、とてもいい気分。』
“The skate park is amazing. I really like the design, it’s in an amazing location,” Millar said.
スケートパークが凄い。デザインにはとても気に入っている。場所は最高。ミラーが言う。

“I watched the builders pour the concrete; they really went out of their way to make the finish on another level. At the moment I’d say it’s my favourite skate park to skate.”

建設現場に入って、コンクリートを注ぐ工程を見に行き、より高いレベルのフィニシュできるように手数をかけ、今はこのパークは一番好きだといえる。

He said the skating community was determined to see the new infrastructure remain in prime condition.
新しい施設がトップコンディションンを保つよう、スケボーコミュニティーが注意を払う。

“I have seen facilities like Frankston skate park go from being world class to not-looked-after rough pieces of concrete in five years, and we really want to make sure that our new skate park gets the love it needs to stay as amazing as it is for years to come,” Millar said.

フランクストンのスケボーパークのような施設、五年間だけで世界級の水準から、世話なしの荒いコンクリートまでおちたところも見たことがある。これから長い先に、この新しいパークの調子が維持されるように必要としているぐらいの愛を受けることを確保したい。ミラーが言う。、
He said the stand-out feature of the skate park was the granite coping, which sits on the lip of the large bowl.
このスケボーパークの目立つ特徴はグラナイトコーピング、ボウルの上の端っこにかけてある。

“It’s really innovative, it grinds better than anything I have ever skated and I think it’s only been used once before, in a skate park in China,” he said.

Port Phillip deputy mayor Serge Thomann said he was thrilled the park had finally come to fruition.

“I am proud to see this family park become a reality after many years of hard work from both the council and the local community,” Cr Thomann said.

『カウンシルとローカルコミュニティーが長い間苦労した結果、家族用なパーク実際にできて、誇りを持っている。』

“I’m also excited about the excellent new facilities that Marina Reserve will provide for current and future residents and visitors.

マリーナレザー部の優れた新しい施設が現在と将来の住民に提供すろ事について、とても興奮している。

Cr Thomann said the project has turned an underused space into a multipurpose space that could cater for everyone.

このプロジェクトを通して、殆ど使われていなかった場所が、みんなが使える多目的なスペースになったという。
