Long-awaited skate park to hold grand opening

Los Alamos County Community Services Department invites the public to view the latest addition to a vibrant downtown Los Alamos and to join in Wednesday’s grand opening ceremony of the skateboard park.

The park, designed with input from local young people, who are the true experts on what makes a great skate park, other community members and County staff, was professionally built by California Skateparks, Inc. and includes state of the art features.

In addition to banks and boxes, the park even includes a “Bump-to-Bump,” a special feature normally set up just for competitions — this is only the second permanent installation of it in the United States.

California Skateparks, Inc. has successfully built skate parks throughout the country and many in New Mexico and local skaters are excited about the brand new one in Los Alamos.

As one young skater, Josh Martinez said during early planning stages of the park, “I really like skating. I just want to have somewhere we can have fun and enjoy it.”

“It’s just us and our free time,” said Elliot Marcille, another eager skater. “The park is looking amazing. We can’t wait to start skating it!” Marcille is a Los Alamos skateboarder who helped advocate for the new downtown skate park.
