Exciting news out of Gunnison! Team Pain will be constructing the large addition to the existing skatepark starting August 13th. The park expansion will include two new bowls and a street area.

The city and county of Gunnison and many local businesses will be making in kind donations of heavy equipment, materials and labor to stretch the budget. But, every penny counts on this one. The more money raised equals more skatepark! Let’s rally around this project and raise some cash. Go to this link to donate.
