Skateboard Park Groundbreaking Scheduled for July 13
(Fayetteville, N.C.) – A groundbreaking for the Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks & Recreation Skateboard Park will be held Saturday, July 13 at 10:30 a.m. at Rowan Park. The park is located at 725 W. Rowan St. A skate event is planned following the ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Pro Instaramp will be on site with their large portable ramp set up for skaters to use following the event until 2:30 p.m.
The Skateboard Park is funded by approximately $1 million from a bond referendum passed in 2016 by citizens to pay for parks and recreation enhancements and improvements. Park construction will begin soon after the groundbreaking and the venue is scheduled to open in late fall.
Team Pain Skate Park Design & Construction of Winter Springs, Fla. was selected as the design-build team leader for the park. Team Pain is skater-owned and for over 30 years has created custom skate parks and skate structures for municipal and government agencies, communities, the private sector, production companies for motion picture and televised events and professional skateboarders and BMX riders.
The Skateboard Park is a great welcome addition for skateboard enthusiasts as it provides a safer place for them to perfect their hobby.
The park also represents progress with park bond projects. Bond money has already paid for multiple new splash pads, a play area in Segra Stadium, existing park upgrades and the construction of a new senior center in west Fayetteville.
