Yes, you read that correctly. After years of litigation, exhausting all resources, and some honest blood, sweat, and tears, the Alix Rice Memorial Skatepark will begin construction in April or May.
The final design of the park will be presented at an Alix Rice Memorial Skatepark Fundraiser on March 26th over at the Main-Transit Firehall.
We are beyond excited to finally have the Alix Rice Memorial Skatepark built. The location of the park will be right next to the Northtown Center in Amherst, across from UB’s North Campus on Millersport Highway. The park will be a great addition to the number of outdoor FREE skateparks that have been and are being built in Buffalo.
The Alix Rice Memorial Skatepark will feature two bowls and a street section. It’ll be the first skatepark that will offer a West Coast construction to it.
The Buffalo News offered a great write up on the park and how it finally came to fruition. Click here to check it out.
Below is a rendering of the Alix Rice Memorial Skatepark. It’s not the final design but it’s a pretty solid idea of what will be built.
