A ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for the newly completed Redlands Skatepark will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, in the southern portion of Sylvan Park.
The event will feature live music, open skating, scootering and cycling, beginner skating clinics, food, vendors, a complimentary bounce house and outdoor activities for all ages.
Following review and recommendation by the Parks and Recreation Commission, on April 17, 2018, the City Council awarded a contract to Three Peaks Corp. for construction of the Redlands Skatepark in Sylvan Park, west of the Redlands Lawn Bowling Club. The completed project cost approximately $1.1 million, which included funds earmarked from the City’s sale of the Nevada Palmetto Groves and $127,000 in private donations raised by two community groups, Friends of Redlands Skatepark and SK8 Park.
City staff and design representatives held three public workshops, attended by approximately 250 people, to solicit design input and sought additional input through social media. The park consists of a 15,000-square-foot, in-ground skate park, with both street and bowl type skating and landscaping amenities.
The public is invited to attend the grand opening and ribbon cutting. In the event of substantial rainfall on Jan. 26, the event will be held the following Saturday, Feb. 2.
