August 1, 2020 -The new Skate Park is going to be epic! Our partner, Team Pain Skate Parks, brings over 30 years of experience to the construction of the Frederick Skate Park project. We are fortunate to have Team Pain Skate Parks, an industry leader recognized for their unique structures, as our partner! Tim Payne, Founder and President, has designed over 200 parks worldwide, including 23 in Colorado. Every crew member working on the project is an experienced skateboarder. Don’t be surprised if you see some rad test runs through the cone. “We are very excited to be working with the Town of Frederick. The Town wanted a new, creative, challenging and fun environment for the community to come together and skate. Team Pain and Frederick were able to take the conceptual ideas for the look and feel of this new park and make them a reality.” – Tim Payne, Team Pain enterprises. Watch for an opening date in late August.
September 18, 2019 - Construction on the skate park is underway! Dirt is being delivered to the park to raise the elevation allowing us to build those righteous bowls you've been waiting for. Once all the dirt is delivered and the appropriate drainage improvements are made, you'll see concrete poured for skate surfaces. Expect this to occur late in October. As construction continues, we'll keep you up to date. Spring 2019 - After much planning and public input, construction is about to begin on the skate park! The skate park is planned to be located in the southern portion of Frederick Recreation Area, along Godding Hollow Parkway. The Town is working with Team Pain, a professional skate park design and construction firm with worldwide recognition. While elements of the design below will be incorporated, Team Pain is also updating the design to give it a similar feel to the course that will be skated at the Olympics in 2020, when skateboarding becomes an Olympic sport!
