The public will soon have an opportunity to view the design of Huntsville’s new state-of-the-art skatepark set to open in late 2022.

The first public viewing of the new skatepark design will take place at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, at Fractal Brewing Project on Leeman Ferry Road, Huntsville. Citizens who cannot attend may also view the event online at global.gotomeeting.com/join/275314341.

Team Pain Skate Parks, the firm overseeing the project, will build the new skatepark across three acres of land between Kids Space and the Championship Soccer Fields at John Hunt Park in Huntsville.

“Skating enthusiasts from across the City spoke with us at two different public input meetings this year and this is it – this is the park you’ve asked for,” said Team Pain President/Owner Tim Payne. “There are lots of custom bowls, snake runs, a street plaza, features for beginners and a three-quarter pipe that will truly reflect the hopes and dreams of the Huntsville skating community. It’s just an overall vibe that will capture the imagination of those who visit the park for years to come.”

A tribute to the City’s original “Get-A-Way Skatepark,” the design will showcase some of the memorable parts of the old facility. Additionally, there will be plenty of new features many haven’t seen that will occupy the 52,500-square-foot space.
