Celebrate Greeley’s New Skateparks

Greeley-CO-Opening-Instagram-WEB-300x300This month we are celebrating the completion of the first stage in Greeley’s new skatepark network at Centennial Skatepark on October 5. A grand opening celebration will feature free food, skate demos, and prize giveaways. I encourage everyone to attend the event and see the new skatepark.

Feedback gathered from residents and data from our parks, trails, and open land master plan process identified a need for more and improved skateparks in Greeley, so in 2018, we began the process of creating a network of community-designed skateparks strategically located throughout the city. The skateparks were created to keep all wheeled-sports enthusiasts in mind. To help with designing and building these skateparks, we retained New Line Skateparks, an internationally renowned full-service municipal skatepark design and construction team.

The new skatepark sites also highlight public art and incorporate custom installations by local sculptor, Joshua Goss.

The two other locations are Peak View Park and 3rd St and 11th Avenue. Construction is underway at both sites and you can visit playgreeley.com/skategreeley/ for more updates on when those will open.

What’s exciting is that these unique skateparks provide new recreational opportunities for the youth and others who enjoy rollerblades, scooters, BMX, skateboards, and more. It’s a wonderful addition to the Greeley community and filled a need voiced by our community members.
