Big Plans for SECA Skate Park…
Thanks to Quarryville native, Zach Coblentz, aka “5KATEWAGON”, SECA Skate Park’s phase 1 of renovations has been completed!
In early 2021, Zach approached SECA about modernizing the Skatepark and raising the funds needed to do so. In August of that year, Zach organized and hosted the first “Quarryville Skate Jam”: Contests, raffles, 50/50, musicians, food trucks, vendors…and lots of fun! The event was a huge hit with the community.
“Winter Wagon” was held in February 2022 at one of the Solanco Fairground’s buildings; another successful fundraiser for the skatepark by 5KATEWAGON!
The 2nd Annual Quarryville Skate-Jam was held on June 11, 2022 and was bigger and better with mens & womens trick contests for beginner, intermediate and advanced; games of Skate Roulette and Wheel & Truck for everyone to win prizes! Musical entertainment was provided by: Chumps, The Grip, & Shaw Calhoune. Oola Bowls & OMG Donuts were on site with their amazing foods! So many awesome vendors, too!! Yet another successful event, thanks to Zach!!
With just over $2,000 short of funds to begin phase 1 of the skatepark renovations, Zach started a “Go Fund Me” in August. He also hosted a “Pop Up” event on August 20 for another push to get those funds!
Below are some pictures that Zach has shared with us from the various events he has held. You can find more photos and info on his Instagram Page: SKATEWAGON!
