    Santa Maria Skate Park Reopens 
     
    The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department has completed a comprehensive renovation project and reopened the Fletcher Park Skate Park located at 2200 South College Drive in Santa Maria. Beginning, Saturday, November 19th, the Skate Park is open during daylight hours and until 10:00 p.m.
    Although a formal ribbon cutting ceremony is planned in January 2023, the reopening is intended to coincide with the Thanksgiving school vacation most local students will enjoy November 19th-27th.  The Skate Park has been closed for almost one year while City officials worked with the American Ramp Company to redesign and upgrade the popular outdoor recreation space.
    The Skate Park renovation cost $210,000 with most of the funding allocated for popular skater amenities that include a new quarter pipe, skate bench, grind rail, grind box, and a hubba ledge. New lighting and fencing were also installed to allow extended use hours and make it safe and convenient for parents to supervise younger children.
    Protective equipment, including helmets, are required to be worn while in the Skate Park.
    Questions may be directed to the Recreation and Parks Department, (805) 925-0951 extension 2260.
