(Ferndale, WA) — The City of Ferndale invites the public to a groundbreaking event on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, kicking off construction of Metalworks Skatepark, a highly anticipated project for the Ferndale community.

The groundbreaking event will take place at the future skatepark location at the 5500 block of Second Avenue, across the street from the old American Legion building. Parking will be available at the Phillips66 Sports Complex. The event will begin promptly at 2:00 p.m. with opening remarks and speeches, with the official groundbreaking at approximately 2:20 p.m.

The City would like to welcome all community members, skaters – thrashers and posers, stakeholders, and project supporters in celebrating this project milestone for the Metalworks Skatepark. Attendees will include Mayor Greg Hansen, City councilmembers, elected officials, City staff, and project partners. The community is encouraged to participate in this eagerly awaited event. You’ll hear from members of the project team, have the opportunity to leave your mark on the official construction project sign, watch as we break ground, and take home a limited-edition Metalworks Skatepark sticker.

The City is stoked to begin construction on the Metalworks Skatepark, ultimately creating a place for community members of all ages and skate skill levels to connect in the heart of Downtown Ferndale. We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. to kickflip this project into gear!
