Work on skate park advances

The new Levi’s skate park in Puerto Peñasco, which one day aims to showcase international level skaters, has progressed about 20% with advances on the cement slab and wooden base ramps.

Jeff Araiza of Uncle Skate, who is also one of the project supervisors, indicated to date about 20% progress has been made on the project, expected delivery of which had been planned for the end of May.  However, the actual delivery may be a few days later due to a calendar adjustment.mayo-2016-skate-park (2)

“Currently we are removing the bulk of the earth for cement and making the ramp structures,” he explained.  The skate park, which will be the only one of its kind in the country, includes investment from the Levi’s brand and is similar to what they’ve done in different parts of the globe including Brazil and Argentina. It will also be able to be used by bicyclists and serve as a competitive platform for some of the best international skaters.

The skate park is presently under construction on a property donated by the municipal administration, located on the corner of Calle 18 and Plutarco Elías Calles near the entrance to the beach access.

In the project launch nearly a month ago, Levi’s Regional Latin American Director, Arcadio Jaramillo, made assurances the park would meet specifications and professional standards in order to stage international competititons with participants from the southern U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico.
