Ferndale Receives Grant for Skate Park, Construction Slated for 2022

The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Board announced the award of a grant to the City of Ferndale for Metalworks Skate Park, a 10,000 square foot skate park facility planned at Pioneer Park.

“This has been something people have been asking about for years,” said Mayor Greg Hansen, “and I’m so excited that we are finally able to make it happen.” The skate park will be located off Second Avenue directly adjacent to the Phillips 66 Sports Complex and within sight of the Star Park playground.

“We chose the name ‘Metalworks Skate Park’ to pay tribute to our industrial roots here in Ferndale and the art and design of the park will reflect that,” said Hansen.

The total grant award is for $480,000 with a portion of the overall project funding to be provided by the City and private donors. Design work will get underway later this summer, with construction anticipated in 2022.

“We are extremely thankful to our delegation in Olympia – Reps. Sharon Shewmake and Alicia Rule and Senator Doug Ericksen for supporting funding for projects such as these,” said Hansen.

For more information, please contact Communications Officer Riley Sweeney at rileysweeney@cityofferndale.org or 360-685-2353.

Citywide Scavenger Hunt Begins July 2nd

This July, the public is invited to participate in this year’s citywide scavenger hunt in the City of Ferndale. It is called the Great Ferndale Frontier Folly.

Clues will be released through the City’s facebook, twitter and website starting July 2nd that will lead participants to find the hidden cow banners throughout Ferndale’s parks. Find the cows and complete other activities, such as talking with a veteran, finding an unusual plant or animal or visiting the police station to score points – the highest scoring teams win cash prizes, toys and more.

“This is a great opportunity to explore your city, meet your neighbors and solve some riddles,” said Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney. Scorecards can be picked up at City Hall or downloaded from the City website. Participants must turn in their scorecard by Tuesday, July 27th to be eligible for prizes.
