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.
