Skate Park prepares for grand opening

Behind a shrouded fence stretching along Paseo Padre Parkway next to the Aqua Adventure venue of Central Park, contractors and Fremont City officials are putting the finishing touches on a "world class" facility that shares equal parts of fun for "street-style" and "pool-style" enthusiasts. A preview tour for the Fremont Recreation Commission revealed awe-inspiring bowls, ramps, stairs, handrails and "fun boxes" of reinforced concrete.

Skating surfaces of 25,000 square feet includes a "competition bowl" dropping 11 feet in a near vertical descent, in what is described as a "world class" facility. A "key" corridor runs down the middle of the park, dividing the different styles of skating while a walkway around the circumference allows non-skating visitors to observe the action from a safe distance. Artwork and layout has been carefully integrated into the park to reflect skateboard style and culture.

Fremont officials are monitoring the completion of park amenities and are expected to announce the date of a grand opening celebration in the near future.
