The First Step of Many for Greeley Skate Parks
The City of Greeley Parks Division will close Peak View Skate Park, 5601 13th Street, Feb. 14, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This short closure will accommodate construction testing for strength and thickness of the existing concrete slab, related to the new skate park build plans the city has for 2019. Once the testing is over, the park will reopen for use. Minimal construction activity will take place. Parks division staff advises skaters to stay clear while testing occurs. Last year, Greeley residents helped design a series of city skate parks with a variety of features to support and encourage wheel sports in Greeley and the surrounding areas. The $1.5-million project will retrofit one skate park, replace another, and build a completely new skate park. When finished, Greeley will have a network of user-designed skate parks with three locations:
- 3rd Street & 11th Avenue
- Centennial Park
- Peak View Park
Once construction starts, work will rotate between skate park locations to ensure at least one park remains open and usable at all times. Greeley’s last parks, trails, and open land master plan process identified a need for more and improved skate parks.
