The Gerry Hurst Skate Park is officially open in Crofton.
It’s a project that has been in the making for many years.
Brent Burridge and Brandon Bonke have been part of the Crofton Xtreme Skate Park Association since 2002 when they were both just 8 years old.

Burridge says it’s great to see kids enjoying the park that were his age when he started advocating for a community skate park.
Bonke says the community truly came together to make this happen. He says there are so many people to thank.
The park on Chaplin Street is about 48-hundred square feet, and accommodates boarders, bikers and scooters of different skill levels.
