Apple Valley, CA Skate & Bike Park: Grand Opening April 23, 2011
For years, BMX riders in Apple Valley, CA have been fighting for a legal place to ride their bikes. All of their hard work will pay off next week, when a redesigned and now BMX-friendly concrete skatepark is set to open in their home town. Grand opening on April 23.
The information below is taken from The town of Apple Valley, CA website www.applevalley.org:
Renovation and expansion of the 3-Diamond Skatepark is currently underway. On December 14, 2010, the Town Council awarded Phase l of the project to California Landscape and Design, Inc. whose skatepark design and construction arm, California Skateparks Inc. has completed over 200 projects and is one of the top companies in the industry. Phase l includes the renovation and expansion of the existing skate park.
The project is expected to be completed by the first week of April. A grand reopening ceremony for the park is also scheduled for April. Keep checking back here for the most up to date information.
When reopened, the significantly improved park will be able to accommodate both BMX and skateboard aficionados.
The new park will open on April 23, 2011!
