Renowned Skate Park Designer Wally Hollyday is leading the design of a Gainesville Parks & Recreation skate park next to the Midtown Greenway. This park will provide a safe public space for skateboarding, due to popularity of the sport and the lack of needed facilities in this area.
Location: Next to the Midtown Greenway, at the corner of High Street and Pine Street, next to the existing water tower.
Project Status: In design phase
Starting Date: Summer 2019 (estimated construction start date)
Completion Date: Summer 2020
Details: The total project cost is estimated to be $1.3 million, to be funded by parks and recreation impact fees.
