There is also a skate park inspired by two friends, Theo and Luke, who presented the idea to developers when they were frustrated there weren’t more places to enjoy their sport.

The park is part of the Highland Bridge development, situated where the former Ford Motor Company Twin Cities Assembly Plant once stood.
