The park first opened in 2002 and officials say it was badly in need of an upgrade. “After 20 years, it’s time for some new rails, adding some fun and adventure to your skating experience and helping skaters develop some new skills,” said Bernalillo County Commissioner Charlene Pyskoty.

County officials say the project was part of an effort to bring more focus on needs in the East Mountains.
