Zeke M. Pierce skatepark opens Sept. 10

Two years ago, Cameron Chaney, then a middle-school student, started talking with Chad Young, of the Vail Recreation District, about his design for a skate park. Today, the space between the north and south sides of the Lionshead Village parking structure is a skate park with beautiful mosaics. What was once an overlooked, under-utilized space is now a special space that welcomes kids, teens and adults to spend hours skating together. The Pierce Family is so proud that the skate park will be named after their son Zeke, a friend of Cameron’s. All are welcome to attend the opening of the Zeke M. Pierce Skatepark on Sept. 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We will dedicate the skate park with a Hawaiian blessing remembering Zeke, congratulate Cameron and celebrate how youth can contribute to our community.
