For almost a year, the Dededo skate park and the skater community have been in the dark and unable to skate. The reason? No lights.
Since December of last year, one of Guam’s three skate parks has had to go without lights, putting a major damper on a skater’s evening routine.
So Clay Duvall enlisted the help of the experts at Kindo Electric and also the Department of Parks and Recreation, along with Melissa Savares, the mayor of Dededo. Volunteers from the Guam Power Authority who live in the neighborhood also helped out and with a little hard work and love, the skate park’s lights, meter, and breaker box were all repaired.
And the skating community has no plans to stop there as the Tamuning skate park, located between two elementary schools, also needs lights and is a project the community is hoping to start.
