Denver, North Carolina has something new / something different / something good and that something is Hangar Skate Park! What’s that? Well it is the brain-child of 36 year-old student pastor Chris Sigmon (aka Siggy) of the 7X Youth Group at Denver Baptist Church here in Denver. It’s a Skate Park that reaches out to the young people to help clear up misconceptions about the kids who ride boards. It was created to offer a positive place where kids can skate and belong.
Tell me more . . . the park opened on June 21, at the former R-Anell Homes property (that Denver Baptist Church purchased about a year ago) the concept is jumping ramps on skateboards or BMX bikes then breaking for Bible study. Currently the skate park is outside and the ramps and benches are covered by a roof. The 10,000 to 15,000 square foot indoor park is expected to be complete by winter.
