Skate Park Grand Opening Success

Page Skate Park grand opening and ribbon cutting Saturday was a terrific success. Perfect blue sky, sunshiney day, the smell of hot dogs on a fire, excited smiles and joyful squeals of an ample crowd carefully navigating around a sea of bike and skate wheels; waiting for city officials to cut the ribbon and kick off opening day skaters to show the young ones how it’s done. Eager local skaters watching from the rim, barely able to hold back as that brand new immaculate $400K skater’s paradise sprawled out before them. Soon everyone with a board was out there taking a test ride to the sounds of enthusiastic community members cheering with lively rock music pumping the skaters on to try all their daredevil tricks.

Meanwhile Mayor Tappan and Councilor Theresa Bowlby gave away helmets to happy skaters and riders through a random number drawing while folks enjoyed free hot dogs under Page Fire Dept’s Old Glory. Truly a perfect day in Page!
