Spalding Skate Park reopens after weekend closure

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Champaign’s Spalding Park is fully open again after a couple of park amenities were closed over the weekend.

The skate park and central baseball field were both closed while crews installed safety netting between them. The Champaign Park District said the new netting helps prevent foul balls from entering the skate park. Now, skaters and baseball players alike can enjoy their activities safely — just in time for summer.
