Skatepark opens in Lexington

Facility is 18,000-s.f.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 12, 2015) — Lexington’s Division of Parks & Recreation and the non-profit group Friends for Skateparks today announced the opening of the 18,000-s.f. Berry Hill skatepark that features a flow bowl, snake run, street section, stairs and rails.

“I think the park will be very popular with local skaters and bikers, and give out-of-town skaters a reason to come visit our city,” said Gavin Duerson, president of Friends for Skateparks. “I am especially excited with how the snake run turned out. It is a truly unique feature that no other park in the region comes close to offering.”

Additional work on the skatepark will continue throughout the summer, including installation of a sidewalk, benches, signage, drinking fountain and landscaping. An opening celebration is planned for August.
