Spohn Ranch’s concrete craftsmen have wrapped up construction of the Ed Day Memorial Skatepark in Gibson City, Illinois, just in time before winter weather sets in. The 4,000 square foot concrete skatepark pays tribute to former alderman Ed Day who passed in 2017 and whose surviving family has been fundraising and advocating ever since.
Gibson City’s new skatepark flows freely but is also strategically broken up into different zones to handle the large crowds sure to flock to this small Illinois community located between Bloomington and Champaign. Whether it’s the concrete pump track, the beginner street section or the bowled out concrete mini-ramp, this skatepark can speak to multiple riding styles and skill levels.
Our friends Soloman Allen and photographer Max Williams recently visited the skatepark and can vouch for the flow and terrain variety.
Landscaping has been put on pause for the winter but will resume in the spring and officially complete the project. Stay tuned!
