CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) -

The Carolina Beach skate park was closed Monday for routine general maintenance work.

“The work is due to normal wear and tear of the park over time,” according to Director of Parks and Recreation Eric Jelinski.

The repairs include replacing broken and chipping coping around the clamshell, grinding the pitted deck area, general patching, filling voids with epoxy, caulking, sealing the concrete, and addressing erosion concerns, Jelinski said.

The anticipating reopening of the skate park, park of Mike Chappell Park, is Monday, March 19, but the park will remain closed until the repairs are completed.
