Gaylord skate park project unveils new student murals

GAYLORD — A project that enabled young people to showcase their creative talent and create a more attractive recreational area has now been completed with the installation of new murals at the Gaylord skate park.

Students learned how to be part of a community solution with RISE: Otsego Substance Free Coalition through its Street Art Workshop Series and Ramp Park Improvement Project at the Gaylord Ramp Park. The park, which shares a lot with the Otsego County Sportsplex at 1250 Gornick Ave., draws young people to recreate with skateboards, BMX bikes and inline skates.

Ranging in age from 12 to 20, the participating youth completed a 10-class workshop on the fundamentals of contemporary street art. Their education culminated with the installation of custom murals at the ramp park on June 21.
