Sturgeon Bay skatepark building a community

Skateboarders in the Door County area have no worries about having a place to perform their craft. The Friends of Sturgeon Bay Skate Park has built a small community dedicated to the upkeep and maintenance of the outdoor facility. Consistent rain and snow can create ice puddles and drag leaves into the bowls, and graffiti can leave a lasting mark. However, the park remains clean and continues to stand out thanks to the effort of local skateboarders eager to do what they love. Paul Fruzyna, one of the co-chairs of the Friends of Sturgeon Bay Skate Park, said his second job of keeping the skate park clean has become official after a new city policy was set in place.



The skate park is the only one of its kind in Door County. Fruzyna said people from all over the area come to skate, even from as far away as Minneapolis and Chicago.
