Ypsi Township skateboard park groundbreaking

. July 31, 2019.

Washtenaw County celebrated International Go Skateboarding Day (July 21) by breaking ground on a new community skate park, slated to open in summer 2020 at the intersection of E. Clark Rd. and Midway in Ypsilanti. Washtenaw County Parks and Rec has pledged $250,000 for the skatepark, an amount that will be matched by the Build to Play Program, which supports skatepark projects that, among other things, “include local skaters in leadership and volunteer roles throughout the planning, fundraising, and design process.” New Line Skateparks will design and build the park with input from the community.
