A trip to Reefton isn’t complete without a visit to the Reefton skate park.  We love this place – Reefton and the skate park!

On a recent visit we met a lovely young man who has talent to burn when it comes to utilising this facility with his bike.

I just hope William is picked up by a talent scout and allowed to flourish.

    What a great use for the boundless energy of these young people – well done Reefton for providing this facility. I wonder what the locals from 100 years ago would have thought of it?

      It is an awesome facility and great for visitors to come and watch this very talented group of young people – wish I had half their energy (and talent!).
