Work on the new Moor Park Skate Park was given the green light  late last year and the full designs that were released soon after, were estimated to cost around £320,000.

Although not officially due to be declared open until September 13, it is already in use as Preston locals make use of the new equipment before the new school term begins.

A council spokeswoman said: “The park officially opens on September 13. But it is ready to use now the main work is complete. We recommend all the usual safety precautions are heeded.”
