The good news keeps rollin’ in — The long-awaited skate park at Fire Station Park is opening later this month in the Near Southside.
After seven years of planning and construction, Dickies Skate Plaza will host a grand opening celebration on Saturday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1616 Hemphill St.
Families are invited to bring their little ones for a day of skateboarding competitions, live music, market vendors, yard games, autographs, and food.
The brand new 15,000-sqft skate plaza will feature obstacles for skateboarders of all skill levels + skateable pathways throughout the park. For those who’d rather kick back and watch the professionals, here’s what else you can enjoy:
- A dog park
- Community green
- 5,000-sqft all-wheel track
- Market plaza
Located in the historic Fairmount neighborhood, the $1.8 million park was made possible by local organizations and the City of Fort Worth.
