Ribbon Cutting Planned for New Skate Park

A ribbon cutting celebration is being held Saturday, August 22nd at 10:00 a.m. for the new skate park in Norfolk. Live demos will be performed by local skaters, BMX riders, and rollerbladers following the remarks.

The skate park design was created by Spohn Ranch in collaboration with local users through a series of design workshops. The park features a kidney bowl, a variety of street elements, and a mini-ramp section. The well-balanced terrain combined with lights for night use and Spohn Ranch’s signature architectural aesthetic will make Norfolk’s skate park one of the best in the state.

The City of Norfolk was awarded $425,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Tourism Development funds from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development that helped fund the project.
