Charlotte Is About To Build A New Skate Park On The East Side


Charlotte is about to build a new community-funded skate park.

The Charlotte Skate Foundation (CSF) revealed that the new skate park will be built on the tennis courts at Kilborne Park, located just north of Central Avenue and east of Eastway Drive.

According to the CSF, they’ve worked with “Charlotte Parks and Rec to establish terms and conditions that will allow this DIY to exist legally and permanently, the first of its kind in Charlotte. Parks and Rec is currently preparing to lease the site to CSF for $1 per year and give the community free reign to build as long as we respect the terms of the lease. We will be able to begin building and skating at the spot no later than July 1, 2023.”

The group says that construction on Charlotte’s newest skate park will start this coming July.
