The Scott Stamnes Memorial Skatepark at Buck Park is currently under scheduled major repairs. The project, which is estimated to take about 3 weeks, includes removal of the cracked surface, pouring new concrete, replacing coping along the edges, and applying a sealant on the park. This project will extend the life of the park for another 10+ years.

Volunteers are still needed and will have the opportunity to work alongside Grindline, a renowned skatepark design and construction company. Your time will greatly help us finish the project before the weather turns and accomplish a full repair within our limited budget.

The skatepark will remain closed for the duration of the project, with hopes to reopen sometime in mid-November.
