Metalworks Skatepark Project
Metalworks Skatepark will be the newest, rad, legit, fleek, savage, wicked, and sweet addition to Ferndale’s recreation facilities. The project is made possible through grant funds provided by the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office and Whatcom County’s Economic Development Investment Program, as well as private donations from Sam Boulos and McDonalds. The project will build a 10,000 square foot skate park off Second Avenue near Phillips 66 Sports Complex, Pioneer Park, and Star Park.

Metalworks will incorporate design and artistic features that emphasize Ferndale’s rich industrial heritage. The Project will feature skatepark design principles that will allow skateboarders, BMX, and scooter riders develop their skills and will feature a mix of street and transitional-style terrain with elements designed for all age groups and ability levels, beginner to advanced.
“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.”
