During the city’s Food Truck Fridays event on Sept. 3, the City of Dawsonville cut the ribbon and officially opened its new skate park at Main Street Park.
In a short ribbon-cutting ceremony, City Council Member John Walden addressed the local children, teens and parents who had gathered at the skate park with boards in hand. Walden expressed his excitement in officially opening the next project to improve the city’s park.
“I’m about as excited as most of y’all for this grand opening of the skate park here in the City of Dawsonville,” Walden said. “This is just another step of things coming ahead for the City of Dawsonville, and I’m excited to see these young people out here with skateboards and all that to just get things going.”
Officials from the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, along with Walden, Dawsonville Mayor Mike Eason and other city leadership, then cut the ribbon, officially opening the skate park to the public.
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, professional skateboarder Jud Heald joined the local boarders on the ramps to skate with them and to teach them some tips and tricks, and several food trucks gathered along the street in Main Street Park with different kinds of food for event attendees to purchase.
