For the first time, on Friday 1/9/15, we loaded up my son’s BMX bike in the backseat and rolled out to find the Awakening Youth Skatepark at The Blended Church, 2215 Country Club Rd. Just barely across the Marion County line, many Hendricks County BMX and skateboard riders began streaming in to take advantage of the ramps set up once a month by youth pastor Jeremy Plumley.
His enthusiasm for the youth who ride BMX and skateboarders has led him to work to get the gym/recreation area of his church transformed into a skatepark to provide free riding from 6pm-12 on the 2nd Friday of every month. With a stage for a band, ping-pong table, foosball tables and bleachers for spectators, the gymnasium area transforms into the skatepark that gives otherwise cooped up teens and young adults a place to ride while temps outside make it impossible.
