Auburn city officials have announced the opening of a new $1 million skate park located at Casey Park, marking a significant investment in recreational facilities for the city’s youth.

Open from dawn to dusk, the concrete park at 150 N. Division St. is now accessible to the public, the city revealed in a recent news release.

Mayor Michael Quill praised the effort, acknowledging it as a milestone in the city’s commitment to its younger residents. He thanked the skate park advisory committee, local and national foundations, and state and federal representatives for their contributions to securing the project’s funding.

The skate park, replacing an older 6,500-square-foot facility built in 2001, was a collaborative project led by the city’s Office of Planning and Economic Development and City Councilor Terry Cuddy. Cuddy highlighted the park’s quality, deeming it a world-class facility that complements the existing Casey and Falcon Park amenities.

The construction, undertaken by Grindline Skateparks, utilized advanced techniques like shotcrete, flat work, and masonry. The funding for this project came from diverse sources, including the city’s Community Development Block Grant program, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Environmental Protection Fund, Auburn’s American Rescue Plan Act Fund, the Emerson Foundation, the Skatepark Project initiated by skateboarder Tony Hawk, and the Stanley W. Metcalf and D.E. French Foundations.
