Been a long time coming, but the Red Lake Skatepark Groundbreaking will take place on Monday, April 23, 2012, from noon to 1 p.m. on the lawn in front of the Red Lake High School.

Soon skate boarders will have a first class park to practice their skills.

The event will consist of a blessing by a tribal elder, and remarks from Chairman Jourdain and Red Lake Representative Donald "Dudie"May, followed by a demonstration from the local skateboarders and refreshments.

A new skatepark and basketball courts are being built in Red Lake this summer as part of an initiative to engage the community’s youth in actives that promote healthy lifestyles. As part of a grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux, a 7,000 sq. foot park skatepark, along with renovations to the Red Lake basketball courts will be built. Construction is estimated to commence the first of May, and estimated to be complete this September 2012.
