About the Project

New Hanover County is working with Seattle-based Grindline Skateparks to bring a new skatepark to Ogden Park.  Grindline will handle the design and construction of the 10,000 square foot concrete skatepark, which will be completed in two phases.  The park will include a skate bowl and street features such as railings and steps.  Funding sources for the project include New Hanover County, online fundraising campaign, grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation and a student fundraiser at Eaton Elementary School.
