Skate Park Staff Evaluation 

In January 2014, staff completed evaluation of the community needs regarding a skate park. In the Fall of 2014 a request for proposals was issued to obtain consultant services for conceptual planning, design and construction services. The skate park's home will be located at 517 NE Ninth St. Staff met with the General Contractor, Team Pain and LittleJohn in January of 2018 to discuss size and plan revisions. A fundraising street team kick-off happened in early 2018 and we are currently collecting funds. Please support the effort to fund the skate park by calling 352-368-5517. Review the Skate Park Staff Evaluation and refer back to this website or the Ocala Skate Park Facebook page often for updated information.
