Vert Ramp Opening Day
The addition of the vert ramps gives the Memorial Park Skate Park all four skate board disciplines, making it the only public park in the nation with such a facility. Valued at over $200,000, the two ramps are being donated to the City of Colorado Springs by the Sk8-Strong Foundation. Sk8-Strong is a Colorado-based organization that was founded to help skateboarding athletes achieve their goals and promote a healthy environment at skate parks.
With the addition of these ramps, the Memorial Park Skate Park is in an ideal position to host both national and international professional skate boarding competitions as well as showcase a potential Olympic Sport.
