Blake Baldwin was 16 years old when he died in a car accident 13 years ago.
This year he would be 29 years old.
Through the work of many people; including his mother, local business owners, graf artists, local leaders, Norman Arts Council, the Norman Parks Board and the City of Norman and even Blake himself, this park was cre8ed and is maintained.
Many people, young and old use this park everyday.
What was really cute (when we were there last Friday evening) a lady and a five year old rode up on their bikes. They watched for a short time and then the young one went on one of the beginner ramps. It was awesome…I wanted to cheer out loud. You could tell this was so much fun for them.
What started off as plans in a notebook from a sixteen year old has become a place of sk8ing, cre8ing and so much more.
