Fukuoka Eyes Skate Park to Boost Youth Appeal

Discussions are underway for the establishment of a new skateboarding facility and event space near “Boat Race Fukuoka” in Chuo Ward, Fukuoka City. The intent is to attract more families and younger visitors. Nationwide, boat race venues are becoming multi-functional facilities open to their communities, and this trend has prompted similar deliberations at “Boat Race Fukuoka” since last year. According to insiders, considerations are now advancing towards adding a skateboarding facility and event space due to the sport’s growing popularity. The potential space for the new facilities, adjacent to “Boat Race Fukuoka”, is approximately 9000 square meters. Plans are to finalize the maintenance and operation methods, as well as the schedule, within this fiscal year, with design and construction to follow from next year. The goal is to boost the venue’s appeal, expand its new customer base, and increase visits from younger people and families. Source: NHK
