I had an email pop up in my inbox today with news that Hastings is going to be getting a new Skatepark which is looking to be completed by this summer. Check the photos, looks like its going to have some really fun street features and a nice little bowl area. I also heard that there will be a BMX Jam/Comp there when it opens, which is rad.  You can see more of the park at this link: hastingsdc.govt.nz/skatepark.
