Arvada Skatepark Grand Opening

The Arvada Skate Park Ribbon Cutting was a one day event to celebrate and acknowledge community sponsorships, contributors and volunteers that helped in the building of the Arvada Skatepark. It was also an experience to “turn over” the skatepark to the community, participate in a skateboarding clinic, watch demonstrations and join the family for kids' games and family-friendly entertainment. Arvada Skate Park welcomed several professional skaters to help make this a special, one-day, “Grand Opening”. The mission was to celebrate the skaters and make it non-intimidating for families and those not familiar with the skate community. In addition to the skating activities, there was be food vendors, photographs and t-shirts for sale.
