Photos: Check Out the Expanded Skatepark in Newport
Newport DIY Skatepark opened its new expanded space and amoeba bowl on Tuesday night.
The effort was led by The Galaxie Skateshop and Gary Collins, with help from Hunger Skateparks and others.
The event was marked by an official ribbon cutting with City of Newport officials - who said that new lighting for the area under the I-471 bridge would be on the way - and a "pool party" and a live show by the band, Tweens.
