World renowned Dreamland Skateparks of Lincoln City will be spearheading a new skatepark project in Pacific City starting in February.

The Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA) along with Moment Surf Company and the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic (CKLC) will begin construction of Phase 1 of the Pacific City Skatepark. Groundbreaking on this project is scheduled for February 12, 2021. Plans are for phase 1 to be completed and ready for skateboards before early summer.

This project is the culmination of a decade long dream and fundraising effort to provide more recreational opportunities for the coastal area’s youth. NVCA is incredibly grateful to Moment Surf Company, Pelican Brewing, Dreamland Skateparks and everyone who has supported CKLC and the Pacific City Skatepark.

Lisa Macy-Baker has recently taken the position of NVCA board president.

“Thankfully, Dreamland was available and willing to begin the skatepark project with the funds we have available now,” Macy-Baker said. “Although the skatepark is only a part of our masterplan, and we are far from fully funded, we’re so excited to start seeing some visible progress.”

The community park, located near Cape Kiwanda, currently serves as a fund-raising overflow parking lot and has raised over $20,000 in 2021 from parking donations. NVCA was also recently awarded a Tillamook County Transient Lodging Facilities Grant for $74,000 which will help to provide utilities and infrastructure to the park. The Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic and Brewfest, usually held in August and organized by Moment Surf Company and Pelican Brewing, serves as the primary fundraiser for the skatepark that will be located at the northeast end of the community park.

NVCA is a non-profit all volunteer organization that is developing a Community Park at the Cape Kiwanda Drive location. Park plans include a skate park, playground, interpretive center, and hiking trails. Community volunteers and donations are essential to the success of this project.

The mission of the NVCA is to bring education opportunities and recreation venues to the community. Visit the NVCA website at http://www.nestucca.org where you can donate and volunteer. Watch the Facebook page for more information and to keep up-to-date on future events.
