The Scott Stamnes Memorial Skatepark at Buck Park is currently under scheduled repairs. The project, which is estimated to take about 3 weeks, includes removal of the cracked areas, resurfacing, replacing the coping along the edges, and applying a sealant on the park. Volunteers are still needed and will work alongside Grindline skatepark builders. To help, call us at (360) 376-7275, or stop by our office located in the northwest corner of the Funhouse Commons building on Pea Patch Lane today! The Skatepark will be closed during the duration of the project.
