Skaters, the wait is over. The brand-new Cloverdale skate park is open for Rodeo weekend.
City of Surrey official Ted Uhrich confirmed the state-of-the art, partially covered skate park is now open for public skating.
It’s located at the northeast corner of Bill Reid Way (62 Ave.) and 176 Street, adjacent to the Cloverdale Recreation Centre.
The grand opening is still to be announced.
The announcement will be good news for skaters like Langley’s Tyson Brunton and Sam Hampton, who were hoping to try out the new park on Thursday, but were turned away by crews completing finishing touches.
Hampton, 18, skates full time and says there isn’t anything comparable in Langley, so he often practices his sport in Surrey.
