Great skatepark in Bolivia – level 2

03-09-2014 15:00

A group built a new skatepark in Bolivia. Over 100 volunteers from 17 countries came to the country to build the park. It took them only 30 days to build the 1400-square-metre park.

Everybody worked on the park’s design and shared ideas. For example, a Japanese group designed a ramp which looks like Mount Fuji.

The skatepark is located at an elevation of around 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level. That means that you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Andes.

Difficult words: volunteer (person who works without being paid for it), elevation (height).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
