Meridian Skate Park Presentation Launch Party Set for Wednesday


MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) – The town of Meridian is one step closer to having its own skate park as the city council voted to hold a skate day open to the public.

The skating community is invited to attend Meridian’s Skate Park Presentation Launch Party on Wednesday at Ben Arthur Davis Park, which will host skating activities. The event will feature music, free food, skateboarding and roller skating.

Skateboarding could be an added sport to the State Games of Mississippi if a skate park addition is built in Queen City.

Ward 5 Councilwoman Ty Bell Lindsey said she was thrilled to bring Meridian’s first and only skate park.

“We’re going to come up with a lot of different fundraising ideas. For anyone; who wants to donate, we will have a start-up fund with the community foundation. Thanks to them, we will start raising funds. Depending on how much money we raise, we’ll probably do it in stages. I want to raise this money so that we can introduce ourselves and show ourselves. Lindsey said.

The free event will begin from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening.

The Board will continue to discuss other opportunities for this development project at its next meeting.
