Construction Of Ann Arbor Skatepark Ramping Up Again After Winter Melts Away

Ann Arbor officials expect to have the construction schedule for the rest of the new skatepark set within the next week.  Park Planner Amy Kuras thinks the facility will be completed by the scheduled June 21st grand opening unless there are a lot of weather issues.

Kuras says most of the remaining work is in two areas.

According to Kuras the city will leave it up to the contractor to determine when the concrete is set enough for skateboarders to use the facility.  

She’s expecting the new skatepark will attract a lot of people.  Click here for WEMU's story on increasing buzz about the skatepark.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
