After almost a month of closure, the popular skateboard park at Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway reopens today.

The facility was closed for cleaning and repairs following episodes of vandalism, Sprinker General Manager Kyle Wintermute told The News Tribune last month.

The park “is in use constantly,” Wintermute said in a news release issued today. “It has become the main meeting point for skateboarders living in and around Parkland and Spanaway. It’s now ready for the summer months ahead.”

The Harold E. LeMay Skateboard Park opened five years ago and is one of the largest such concrete facilities in the state, according to the website.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the summer.
