Special to the
Opelika Observer

The cities of Auburn and Opelika are moving forward with plans to build a skate park at Indian Pines Golf Course. Two skate park companies, American Ramp Company and Spohn Ranch Skate Parks, each submitted a proposal for the park’s design, and the cities are now asking for community members to vote on their favorite concept.
In June both companies held open forums to hear community members’ opinions on potential design elements. They used that input to design potential concepts for the park.
Designs from both companies can be viewed at www.opelikaparks.com. After viewing both proposals, residents are urged to cast their vote for their favorite design. Each resident may cast one vote between now and Aug. 19.
The skate park will be built where the tennis courts are currently located. The park will be free and open to the public.
