Mobile skateboard park open to all Saturday
Skateboarders are usually looking for a place to roll and the city of Yuma is giving them an opportunity to do that this weekend.
This Saturday, the city of Yuma is inviting skaters to test skating equipment on a mobile skateboard park provided by the American Ramp Company (ARC). The equipment will be at Kennedy Park, on Kennedy Lane north of 24th Street, starting at 10 a.m. till noon.
The skaters have to bring their own boards and helmets, and they must sign or provide a waiver to participate. If the skater is under 18 a parent or legal guardian has to sign the waiver. Waivers are available at the Parks and Recreation office inside City Hall, One City Plaza, or by e-mailing and requesting a form at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Music, contests and prizes will be going on during the skate session, and a representative from ARC will be available to answer any questions.
"The city will seek feedback from the skaters and incorporate that input into future changes to the Kennedy skating facility," said Debbie Wendt, recreation superintendent for the city of Yuma, in a news release.
"We're constantly trying to find different equipment out there that is modern, exciting and that the kids want in the skate park," Wendt said. "We want to get input from the skateboard community."
The event is free and open to the public. For more information call Parks and Recreation at 373-5200.
