Carl W. Saldutti, Jr. Skatepark Officially Dedicated

Skatepark Dedicated 2021

Back in July of 2020, boards, blades and bikes hit the freshly dried concrete in Fourth Street’s newest park amenity and they haven’t stopped since. Kids of all ages, from all over, come to Lansdale to experience this new skatepark and whether they’re seasoned veterans or there to learn a new skill, the inclusivity of the park is easy for all to see.  For nearly fifty years, former Director of Parks and Recreation Carl W. Saldutti, Jr. worked tirelessly to bring our community together through recreation so it is only fitting that this feature will now be known as the Carl W. Saldutti, Jr. Skatepark.

Conversations about a skatepark in Lansdale started ten years ago when the Borough was looking for ways to engage those kids who do not participate in traditional sports. Carl truly embraced the fact that there were alternate opportunities for this underrepresented group and advocated for a way to give them what they needed. After a decade of planning and anticipation, it is amazing to see the park filled daily and hear the sounds of skaters encouraging each other, creating a true sense of belonging.

Borough staff, elected officials and residents have awaited the opportunity to celebrate the legacy of longtime Parks & Recreation Director Carl W. Saldutti, Jr. and today we are pleased to officially dedicate the Carl W. Saldutti, Jr. Skatepark on Carl’s birthday. Thanks to Carl, Lansdale parks have touched the lives of thousands and with the addition of the skatepark his legacy will continue to touch the lives of generations to come.
