Work Complete on New Skate Park in Parsons

Posted: Updated:

Work is complete on a new skate park in Parsons.

The skate park is located near the Corrick's Ford Battlefield.

The park features benches and eight different obstacles for skate boards and bicycles.

The $50,000 facility was made possible through various grants.

Skaters said they're looking forward to using the park.

"You just got two parks here, there's nothing really there. They finally put this thing in, and now you can do whatever you want, not get in trouble for it, and it means a lot for us that actually put something in for the kids," said Parsons resident Joseph Hess.

The city will hold a grand opening next Friday at 6 p.m. on National Skateboarding Day.
