Grab those skateboards and rollerblades, there's a new place to skate in town.
Grant Park is home to a new three-acre skate park.
The $2.7 dollar project opens today, a month earlier than expected.
It might be a good idea to wear helmets and gloves because the park is made mostly of concrete.
The plaza-style park kicks off it's opening day at 11 a.m. with DJs and a number of local skate shops and brands.
