JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Hole Skatepark is in the early stages of a third expansion project, with aims to expand the skating area by 13,500 square feet.

Yesterday Jan. 3, the Teton County Board of County Commissioners approved a contract with Dreamland Skateparks, LLC for the design of phase three of the Jackson Hole Skatepark. Funding for the design, totaling $20,000, was donated by Audrey and Scott Blum.

According to the County, the existing skatepark located on the TCSD #1 campus, was built in two phases, the first in 2001 and the second in 2006. The total area of the park is now 14,075 square feet and phase three will expand the park to 27,575 square feet.

Phase three will expand the area outside of the existing skatepark, with a larger flat skate surface, a mini-ramp, rails, stairs and boxes.

According to the agreement between Teton County and Dreamland Skateparks, an Oregon-based company, the submission of 60% of the design will be ready for review Feb. 17 and 90% of the complete design will be ready for review March 3.
