Town will build new skate park
Review/Salina SialegaA sign on the fence around the disassembled skate park at the Chino Valley Community Center Park on Road 1 East tells people why the skate park is gone, because the Town’s insurance company could no longer insure the crumbing facility because it wasn’t build to industry standards. Plans to build a new skate park at a location a few yards to the south of the current one would utilize stronger materials for harsh Chino Valley weather.

Chino Valley Review

An all-concrete skate park in Chino Valley should last longer and handle more wear and tear than the old skate park that used concrete combined with other materials, said Ron Grittman, Public Works Director/Town Engineer.

But most importantly, a new skate park must be built according to industry safety standards.

At its regular meeting Dec. 10, the Chino Valley Town Council approved $34,255 from Park Impact fees for a new expert design by California Skateparks to improve the old disassembled skate park at the Chino Valley Community Center Park on Road 1 East, which closed three years ago.

Town crews will build the new one a few yards to the south of the old one.

The old skate park had not been designed to industry standards and posed a liability. For this reason, the company that previously insured the Town's skate park, dropped its policy, and the Town posted a sign stating the cancellation on the fence around the skate park and removed its features - bumps, ramps and rails.

The council asked that staff run the new construction plans by the insurance company.

Grittman said the new skate park will be an easy- to moderate-skill facility, rather than an advanced skill park, like the one Prescott has at its park, which is rarely used.

The Town hopes to have the new skate park designs by the end of July 2014.

The Town also hopes to have in-kind donations of materials to build the skate park.

I was part of the generation that couldn't wait for the first skate park to be built although nothing fancy but still gave us kids sonething to skate up if they would've just built the concrete one first we would still have it today. I'm all grown up know but would start skating again so I can teach my kids right here at home it would be great for them and other kids in this town maybe it would help them stay away from bad life styles and to be honest I would be stoked too. Oh and I spent 8 solid years of my Chino life there and there was never drugs or anything else like that's there please Chino do this for the town the kids and me lol. Thank u

Skate park approved, but the Youth center was denied some time back? Perhaps something that would bring in kids from the surrounding communities like a proper water park would be more beneficial. Money to Chino Valley... I guess the skate park is finally something for the kids.

This is good news! I hope the kids understand that Chino Valley is a small town and that it can't always provide the biggest and the best, but that the adults do care enough about them to give what we can. Hopefully the skate park will be well used.
