In 1988 the Sentinel reported on a story about the loss of a homemade skateboard ramp. After the council had removed the ramp, local young people asked the Sentinel for help to see if their ramp could be re-instated. Its not clear from further editions of the paper if the council’s offer to look at the situation ever resulted in success. Keen skateboarders today can of course access the Edinburgh Skatepark at Saughton Park. You can read the story about the skateboarders by clicking here on Sentinel October 1988.
