Gaylord Skate Park Project unveils new student murals


Gaylord – A project to enable young people to showcase their creativity and create a more engaging recreational area is now complete with a new mural installed at the Gaylord Skate Park.

Students learned how to be part of the RISE: Otsego Substance Free Coalition community solution through its street art workshop series and Gaylord Ramp Park’s ramp park improvement project. The park shares a lot with the Otsego County Sportsplex at 1250 Gornick Ave., attracting young adults to recreational activities on skateboards, BMX bikes and inline skates.

Participating youth, ranging in age from 12 to 20, completed a 10-lessons workshop on the fundamentals of contemporary street art. Their education culminated in the installation of a custom mural at Ramp Park on June 21.
