The Roanoke Skate Park will be closed temporarily for repairs.

The skate park, located in Wasena Park beneath the bridge and next to the Roanoke River Greenway, is closed for an undetermined amount of time. Parks and recreation staff will be ordering new materials and working to fix some features that are currently broken.

Workers making the updates will eventually start to open portions of the park during the repair times, allowing skaters to continue to use the facility.
