Skatepark Construction Underway at Rawl’s Creek

Below are renderings of the park.

Rawl’s Creek will become a hub for skateboard enthusiasts as construction began last week on a state-of-the-art skatepark. The project, spearheaded by Jesse Clayton from 5th Pocket Skateparks, aims to provide a dedicated space for skateboarders in the community to showcase their skills and foster a sense of camaraderie among riders.

With an estimated timeline of 10 weeks, the skatepark is expected to be completed by the beginning of summer. Spanning over 8,500 square feet, the park will feature a street-style course and a bowl, catering to skaters of all levels and preferences. From beginners to advanced riders, the park will offer a variety of challenges to inspire skateboarders.

Community Benefits from Skatepark

The construction of the skatepark has generated excitement within the community, as it promises to provide a safe space for skaters to practice their sport. Additionally, the park will serve as a venue for hosting events and competitions, further boosting the local skateboarding scene and attracting visitors from surrounding areas.

In conjunction with the skatepark project, the after-school skateboarding program has been flourishing, with over 80 kids participating and a full-time instructor leading the way. This program not only promotes physical activity and skill development but also instills discipline and perseverance in young skateboarders.
