Lakeland Skatepark Grand Opening May 18

The newly built Lakeland Skatepark located at Lake Bonny Park, 800 US 98 south will officially open on Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. with a grand opening ceremony that will include music, demonstrations and plenty of time for skaters to get familiar with the design elements of the park.

The park was built by world renowned Team Pan who specializes in custom concrete skate park facilities.  Team Pain has over 30 years experience with professional riders and they are known for their challenging “first-ever” structures that push the limits.  The company has been providing design and construction experience to municipalities around the globe in concrete park facilities since 1997.

The park was designed with the input from local skaters who attended a series of workshops during the planning phase of the park.  A number of skaters and City of Lakeland staff also visited a number of skate parks in the Central Florida area to look at designs and get direct feedback from skaters on what elements they liked about certain parks.

The park features a deep bowl, flow course, snake run and a freestyle/street course.  For more information, contact Pam Page, (863) 834-6088 or Kevin Cook, (863) 834-6264.  See you on Saturday!
