Brisbane’s last skate rink is set to close and be replaced with a fitness gym.
The Stafford Skate Centre has been a neighbourhood icon for decades hosting thousands of birthday parties and skating competitions for the more serious bladers.
But the owner of the building has recently sold the property and World Gym will be moving in come September.
The Skate Centre operators took to Facebook to share the news with Brisbane families.
“We cherish the relationships we have built with the community and the support you have given us over the last 40 years.”
“It will be the end of an era for all of us – and we have loved every second of it.”
