(SPOT.ph) When Margielyn Didal rose to fame during her Tokyo 2020 Olympics run, the skateboarder would mention her experience of having to elude cops and traffic enforcers along the streets just to be able to skate. There is a scarcity of open spaces in the country; more so, skate parks that are accessible and open to the public. But different municipalities and cities are now stepping up to provide a safe venue for skaters to practice their tricks. This includes Apalit, which recently opened a skate park—the first of its kind in the province of Pampanga.

In a February 2022 interview with Radyo Pilipinas, SK Federation President of Apalit, Allen Dungco, explained, "Marami pong mga kabataan ang naglalaro ng skateboard dito po sa aming bayan, so nagre-request po sila kung maaaring magpagawa o magpatayo ng skatepark ang bayan ng Apalit." With support from Apalit Mayor Jun Tetangco, the 350-square-meter Pista StreetSkate was put in completion.
