On Friday, January 8, 2021, Si View Metro Parks provided an update on the Torguson Skatepark renovation project.
Good news: the project is close to completion, which will bring an expanded and upgraded outdoor skating recreation venue to the City of North Bend. Unfortunately, the recent wet weather is slowing progress of some remaining skatepark components, including the installation of pathways, stairs and landscaping.
This remaining work is weather dependent and currently it is too wet to complete. The park’s saturated grounds need to dry out before work can resume, which will avoid damaging skatepark structures.
Residents are encouraged to be patient and wait to access the skatepark until construction is fully complete. Only at that point will construction equipment and fencing be removed. Si View Parks says the new park will be worth the wait.
About Torguson Skatepark
The renovation of the Torguson Skatepark expands and replaces the former 6,000 sq. ft. facility with a new 13,000 sq. ft. skatepark that includes elements for all skill levels. The skatepark broke ground in July 2020 and is being constructed by Seattle-based skatepark company, Gridline. The design was developed using community feedback gathered by Si View Metro Parks at two community meetings.
