Unity Skatepark is well under way as Spohn Ranch Inc. staff members oversee the 10,000 square-foot community amenity. Plans for the next weeks include the creation of a pump track, rails, a bowl, ledges, pads and embankments being installed for those who enjoy wheeled sports. The projected cost is $655,500, with the bulk of the funding coming from individual contributions, various supporters and fundraisers.
The anticipated opening is planned for November, officials said.
In one year, all but one remaining buildings on the property which formerly housed parts of the Northville Psychiatric Hospital, have been demolished. Building 14, the former laundry facility, will be repurposed, officials said. Contractors are currently demolishing building foundations and tunnels on Buildings D, F, G, crushing the concrete and hauling the debris away.
