BHUTAN’S FIRST SKATE PARK OPENS IN THIMPHU
Bhutan’s first skate park was opened in Bebena in Thimphu on November 20.
The newly built skate park was built by an American family in memory of their late son Johnny Strange and was constructed at a cost of USD 98,000.
Johnny Strange first came to Bhutan in 2011 and brought a skateboard with him, according to father Brian Strange. The skate park was reportedly constructed with an objective of benefiting the youth of Thimphu with support from the ‘Strange’ family from America.
