Ludington Holds Groundbreaking for Stearns Skateboard Park

Skatepark concept
The Ludington Skate Plaza is the next cool project for the City of Ludington, Michigan. Ludington is home to a myriad of cultural and recreational opportunities including a nationally recognized sculpture park, large dowtown murals depicting the area's rich history, the Historic White Pine Village, and of course all Lake Michigan has to offer, including beautiful white sand beaches, impressive sand dunes and Michigan's No. 1 fishing port.

The City of Ludington is anxious to take the Skate Plaza from an impressive design to a reality. The plaza will be located in Stearns Park, a hub of recreational activity along the Lake Michigan shore. The design calls for a 100-foot by 130-foot plaza, every inch of which is available for use by rollerbladers and skateboarders of all ages. The plaza is also designed for multiple uses and may feature concerts, ceremonies and other public events.

Construction costs are estimated at $229,000. Matching grants are being sought to offset local expenses, but your financial assistance is needed to make this project happen. So strap on your helmet, take a virtual tour of the Ludington Skate Plaza and please consider making a donation. All donations are tax deductible.
