Frederick, MD -- The Frederick Police Activities League (PAL) is pleased to announce the grand opening of the Chief Kim C. Dine / Police Activities League Skate Park on May 9th at 5:00 pm. The skate park will be located at 26 S. Wisner Street.

The Skate Park named after former Frederick Police Chief Kim C. Dine will be open daily sunrise to 10:00 pm and will be free. PAL Board President Kevin Contardi said “The PAL Board is happy to be a part of this amazing public private partnership that included several amazing community partners. The youth of Frederick will truly enjoy the new free to use streetscape style skate park. The skate park was Chief Dine’s vision and is a small part of his amazing legacy.”

Please join us in celebrating this grand opening! There will be skateboard demonstrations fromPitCrew, Entertainment, Police Displays, and food provided by in10seBBQ. Keyote & McGruff the Crime Dog will be making an appearance as well.

Chief Tom Ledwell said “The Frederick Police Department is very excited about the opening of the Skate Park. This park will be a great venue for our community to use. It is just one of many projects and efforts involving PAL and the community working together in partnership. The celebration of its opening is also a celebration of the people who collectively work together on a daily basis to make our community a better place for our youth.”

This endeavor would not be possible without the support of many organizations, businesses, and community members. PAL would especially like to thank:

The City of Frederick
Hildebrand Limparis & Associates
J.F. Brown III & Associates
Morgan Keller Specialty Contracts Group
Parks & Recreation Commission
PitCrew
Zavos Architecture + Design, LLC.

This project was mainly funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The remaining portion was offered as in-kind services and donations.

The Police Activities League of Frederick (PAL) began in August of 1999, and is a recreation-oriented juvenile crime prevention program that relies heavily upon athletics and recreational activities to create and cement the bond between police officers and the kids on the street. During the school year the PAL program is offered in the evenings at the PAL Center in the Lucas Village Community. PAL offers kids a safe nurturing place to learn and interact with the police officers all while having a good time.
