The city of Blaine has scheduled a ribbon cutting ceremony for the re-opening of the skate park behind city hall.
The ceremony is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, August 9 and will showcase the park's new TruRide steel skate park equipment.

Blaine city council approved a $19,000 contract with California skateboard equipment manufacturer Spohn Ranch in May. The city budgeted $20,000 for a modular ramp system as part of its 2010 park and cemetery capital improvement plan.

The new equipment includes a series of their TruRide modular steel ramps, a quarter pipe, a centered deck, a ramp system with stairs, grind rail and a bench. The equipment is made from powder-coated, galvanized steel, which is highly resistant to wear from weather and general use.
