Miguel Ribera Skate Park opens
The City of Reno has officially opened Miguel Ribera Skate Park at 3905 Neil Road.
The $694,400 skate park project has been a couple years in the making as the city worked to secure funding, which included Public Works Capital Projects Funds, Residential Construction Tax District 4 Funds and a $225,000 grant from LWCF.
Powerhouse Construction, Inc., was awarded the project for $340,139. The city purchased concrete features from American Ramp Company for $334,261.02 and $20,000 toward the site design.
Nevada was honored in the 3- to 5-million population category, alongside Kentucky and Utah, while Alabama was awarded the Gold Shovel in the same Category. Other Gold Shovel Awards went to Texas, Georgia, Virginia, Arizona and Mississippi.
