Carolina Beach Skate Park to Open Monday

CAROLINA BEACH -- It was something the young people of Carolina Beach asked for, and now they'll soon be able to use it.

The 8,000 square foot skate park off Dow Road in Carolina Beach opens Monday.

The town council approved the skate park, and it took four months to build.

Town officials say they want the skaters to contain their excitement for at least a few more days until it opens.

A grand opening celebration is planned for July 14.

The town also says they hope to put up a web cam soon so that anyone can watch the skaters.
