Construction of Columbia County’s first skate park and BMX track is nearly complete.
Columbia County Community and Leisure Services Director Barry Smith said the $1.5 million facilities at Blanchard Woods Park in Evans could be finished as early as Dec. 1.
“Definitely, by the end of the year,” Smith said.
The wait is agonizing for Joey Tedesco and other BMX riders in the area. Tedesco, track operator for Augusta BMX riders club that will officially transition to Blanchard Woods BMX when the facility is complete, said it’s exciting to see it come together.
