Barcelona has already its first skate park located in the courtyard of a public school, Elisenda de Montcada in the Ciutat Meridiana.
The initiative came from the educational center itself, which has assumed the cost of the installation, and the Associació Esportiva Nou Barris, with the aim of promoting urban sports among children and adolescents, not only from the center itself, but from the whole of the Zona Nord. The space, inaugurated on January 13, has the collaboration of the District of Nou Barris and Pla de Barris, which is in charge of the dynamization of the playground with monitors specialized in urban sports, especially skateboarding, from the Associació Esportiva Nou Barris.
