REMINDER: Blake Doyle Skatepark Groundbreaking Today (Tuesday, Aug. 2)
The City of Pensacola invites the public to a groundbreaking event on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 4 p.m. kicking off construction of the Blake Doyle Skatepark, a highly anticipated and monumental project for the Pensacola skate community.
The groundbreaking event will take place at the future skatepark location at Hollice T. Williams Park, under Interstate 110 along North Hayne Street, between Jackson Street and La Rua Street. Please note: This is a rain or shine event.
All community members, skaters, stakeholders and project supporters are encouraged to join in celebrating this project milestone for the Blake Doyle Skatepark. Attendees will include Mayor Grover Robinson, City Council members and other elected officials, and Jon Shell of Upward Intuition.
The skatepark is part of the overall transformation of Hollice T. Williams Park through a joint project with the City of Pensacola and Escambia County, which will ultimately create a place for community members of all ages to connect and enjoy activities in the heart of the city. The park will also serve to improve water quality and reduce stormwater in the area.
