“Reopening the city’s skatepark in a new-and-improved space embodies American Canyon’s commitment to recreation accessibility,” said Mayor Leon Garcia. “We are excited to unveil this new chapter in our community and witness locals take advantage of the new facilities.”

Veterans Memorial Park was deemed the optimal spot for the relocation because of its visible location, ample parking, accommodation for a concrete pad and overall ease of access.

The enhanced skatepark boasts new features, including a concrete mini-bowl, a larger concrete big bowl, ledges, banks, stairs, long quarters and more.

“It’s always our priority to enhance recreational offerings in our community,” Garcia said. “Our new skatepark is just one more reason why American Canyon is the best place to live, work and play.”

All community members are invited to the April 10 ceremony to help celebrate the occasion and can RSVP by email to Becky Hendryx at
