Xtreme Wheels Battles to Reopen

Xtreme Wheels indoor skate park is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign that would allow the facility to reopen. Over the years the indoor skate park has become a haven for young skaters (Inline and BMX) who populate the complex year round. Xtreme Wheels has a number of features that are not found anywhere else in the region, including space for bands to play live concerts. Wintertime is not the friendliest of seasons when it comes to skateboarding, that’s why it is so important to reach the Go Fund Me goal.

“The building was already in trouble before it closed its doors a year and a half ago but since then the damage associated with it sitting unused has increased. A team of local volunteers has been working free of pay to try and restore the space but there are a lot of materials and man hours involved. We need to make sure we are following the landlord’s requirements so that the space can not only be functional, but safe and inviting as well.” – Extreme Wheels

Already the crowdfunding effort has realized over half of its $5000 goal, in just eight days time. If you like what you’re seeing with this awesome initiative, then consider donating to the GO Fund Me campaign.

Before closing, the skate park was open for a decade. $5K is not a big ask to get the wheels rolling again. Once the facility is open, a number of new features will be added to the complex, which will help to generate increased interest in years to come.
