After 9 years of fundraising and more than 10 years of planning and dreaming, the MDI Skatepark, located next to the Ballfield and across the street from the MDI YMCA, will celebrate it's grand opening on Sunday, June 25th from 1 PM to 3 PM.

The grand opening will feature a ribbon cutting, food, music and fun! Even though it's open, fundraising continues as the brick and concrete donor path still needs to be constructed as well as for signs, landscaping and upkeep of the park

The grand opening celebrates the triumph of perseverance, camaraderie, commitment, citizen initiative, collaborative municipal spirit and generous donors.
