Detailed renderings show what state-of-the-art skate park in Sioux Falls will look like
The Barb Iverson Skate Park will become the region's premier street skating complex once completed.
The commencement of a year-long construction project to build a 20,000-square-foot skate park was commemorated with a groundbreaking ceremony at Nelson Park in Sioux Falls this week.
Officials from the Sioux Falls Development Foundation, the city of Sioux Falls, and the Let's Skate nonprofit, which advocated for the park, hailed the $2.5 million project as a testament to community collaboration and a commitment to promoting healthy recreation for youth in Sioux Falls.
You can read more about the project here, and below, you can view images from Thursday's festivities, including remarks from Don Kearney (Director of Parks and Recreation), Alex Jensen (City Councilor), Rick Kiley (former City Councilor), Karla Santi (Sioux Falls Development Foundation board member), and Xavier Pastrano (Let's Skate board member). The gallery also includes detailed renderings of what the skate park will look like.
