Skaters are getting some new challenges in Hampden.
The skatepark in Roosevelt Park on W. 36th St. is set to undergo a second phase of construction, bringing upgrades and new additions.
As part of the work, an 11,000 sq. ft. asphalt pad will be demolished and replaced with a concrete street plaza. The new blacktop will have a host of new spots to turn tricks, such as banks, stairs and ledges. The idea is to bring features that skaters seek out in downtown Baltimore to the park.
That will add to the existing 5,000 sq. ft. bowl, which was completed in 2014.
A groundbreaking was held on Tuesday to announce the new work, and construction is set to start soon.
