Construction has begun on the Boone Skate Park. The Watauga Democrat reports Phase 1 of the project began work September 13.

According to the report, Artisan Skateparks of Kitty Hawk, NC will be handling the project. Artisan has been building skate parks around the country for more than 25 years.

J.P. Pardy, one of the organizers and the owner of Recess Skate and Snow, said that the timeline for completion is hard to determine with cold weather not far away, but said the build itself would take a couple of months.

Donations to help with the remaining 2 phases of the project are still welcome. You can learn more at and search Boone Skate Park.
