Groups of delighted young skaters and cyclists needed no encouragement to show off their moves on the half pipe when Gordon’s skate park was opened by Scottish rugby player Kevin Utterson back in July 2004.

Part of Kevin’s duties included the release of 100 helium balloons.

The fundraising and planning of the skate park project had been overseen by the specially-formed Gordon-On-Trak group which raised £19,000 for the park in less than a year.
