CULLMAN, Ala. – After years of planning and the release of the project’s final design in April, the grand opening for Skate Depot, Cullman’s new skatepark, will take place Saturday, Nov. 12, from noon-3 p.m. The park is located along Second Avenue Northeast between the Cullman Police Department and Depot Park. 

Professional skateboarder Jake Wooten, originally from Tennessee, will have his board in-hand and show the crowd the potential that can be achieved at Skate Depot. The 2018 Vans Park Series Tour Huntington Beach stop winner is noted for his energetic and gifted style. 

Entertainment will be provided by Mykael V, a DJ who has worked with the NFL and NBA and traveled the globe glorifying God with his mixer and two turntables. His reputation for empowering young people to live their lives honoring God is well known. 

The new skatepark was designed by Los Angeles-based design firm Spohn Ranch, and construction started soon after the unveiling of the plans by lead project designer Adam Eichorn. Spohn Ranch’s specialized construction team completed its portion of the build while the City’s team completed the finishing touches. 

“We have an exciting grand opening in store for this Saturday,” said Cullman Parks, Recreation & Sports Tourism Executive Director Nathan Anderson. “A lot of hard work has been poured into making sure the skate community has a place to develop their talent and we couldn’t be more proud of the result.”
