The Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department plans to hold a free, daylong "Go Skate Day," tomorrow, Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at Eagle Skate Park. This is the 14th year of the event. Known as the grind heard around the world, Go Skate Day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 9:45 p.m. Normally, there is a $5 daily skating charge. On this day, that charge will be waived. There will be music, contests, prizes and giveaways.

The purpose of the event, according to the senior recreation specialist Jodie Costello, is "to bring the local Skateboard community together for a fun day celebrating the sport! And hopefully attract new skaters."

Eagle Skate Park is one of three in Lee County. The others include Veterans Park (Lehigh Acres) and Bonita Springs Recreation Center.

Eagle Skate Park has a 27,000 sq. ft. skating surface, as well as a 6-foot half pipe, Woodward ramps & rails and an 800-sq.-ft. Covered Pavillon area. The park is equipped with picnic tables, a 50 gallon cool mister, vending machines, restrooms, and a 1,800-watt, Bose sound system. Experienced skate attendants are on site.

For more information about the event, call 239-242-3950.
