Voters approved a $35 million parks and recreation bond referendum in 2016, and about $1 million of it was devoted to this facility. Team Pain Skate Park Design & Construction of Winter Springs, Florida, built the park with an in-ground concrete design to cater to both novice and advanced skaters. The park features banks, ledges and humps. It has a concrete bowl for skaters to ride rapidly up and down to do tricks. There also is a large street skate area with ramps and fixtures to simulate skateboarding on public streets. The facility provides for open skating plus lessons, exhibitions and team competition.
