[ARCHIVED] Bear River Skate Park Closed for Maintenance

Bear River Skate Park Closure NewsFlash

The Bear River Skate Park will ollie into maintenance and repairs during the week of May 13 through Friday, May 17 and be closed during the duration of the work.

“Just as you would take care of your board, checking the axle, wheels and bearings, we’re taking care of some items to keep the skate park in top shape and protect this great amenity,” said Parks Supervisor Ernie Jenkins.  “We need your help in staying out of the park during this time so we get the work completed quickly and minimize the closure.”

The city contracted with Team Pain Enterprises, a custom skate park design/build company which has built numerous parks in Colorado, to conduct the repairs and maintenance.  Team Pain will be on site at the facility for the week and their crew will conduct the required work over the five days.

The repairs will consist of removal of all pool coping and installing new coping, grout and epoxy joints; replacing broken or bond failed tiles, applying self-leveling sealant to all saw cuts; crack chase on flat concert; concrete patching behind all steel coping; grinding down joints showing separation and repainting all steel; and pressure washing and applying sealant to the entire concrete park area.

The Park will remain closed the entire week and the city asks all users to respect the closure.  Allowing adequate time for all materials to bond, dry and cure ensures the repairs last to their full extend and provides a longer time before additional work is required.  

Team Pain is a Florida based skate park specialist working world-wide for over 30 years creating custom skate parks and skate structures for municipal and government agencies, communities, private sector, production companies for motion picture and televised events and professional skateboarders and bmx riders.

The Bear River Skate Park is anticipated to reopen on Saturday, May 18. Please keep in mind with construction of the Combined Law Enforcement Facility, Lagoon Court is experiencing increased vehicle use during the work week. Bear River offers limited parking, but it’s recommended that you roll your way to the park when it reopens.
