Phase 1 Groundbreaking Ceremony
It’s finally here! Following years of hard work and relentless determination, local officials, Action Sports enthusiast, and concerned community members are excited to invite you to the groundbreaking ceremony for Phase 1 of the Quakertown Action Park Transformation Project on October 6, 11 AM at Quakertown’s Main Street Skate Park.
Phase 1 will include the construction of a recreational facility that will be the home base of operations for both Free Fall Action Sports and the Quakertown Borough Park and Recreation Department. The building will include a snack stand, bathrooms, and shared meeting areas for both Free Fall and the Quakertown Borough Park and Recreation Department. The new facility will add immediate value to the park and build on all the positive momentum taking place on this property.
Funding for Phase 1 is exclusively through local businesses, church partners, and concerned citizens. Berks Ridge Company will lead the construction with help from many of their partnering contractors, local funders such as Kenneth M. Carr Family, and many more. This is truly a grassroots effort to invest in the young people of our community.
The Quakertown Action Park Committee continues to finalize details on Phase 2, the addition of a new state-of-art “destination” concrete skate park facility. More information will be released as soon as it is available.
Funding, in total, has recently exceeded 1 Million Dollars! This has been made possible by the support of additional local family business partners, DCNR and DCED Pennsylvania State Grant funding, and the Tony Hawk Foundation.
We always said it would take a miracle to pull this off. The miracle is all the different partners coming around the table at just the right time! – Pastor Dave, Quakertown Action Park Committee Leader.
The vision is to see Quakertown’s Main Street Park transformed into a state-of-art Action Sports recreation and training facility that acts as a hub for additional mentorship and development opportunities. Completion of this project will provide an amazing place for bikers, skaters, and youth of all ages to come together and progress in their sport in a safe, positive and community friendly environment.
Please join the celebration to EXPAND OUR PARK AND INSPIRE OUR NEXT GENERATION.
