The Torguson Skatepark is now open in North Bend after years in the works.

The park, located at 750 E North Bend Way, was opened to the public last week. The design of the new park was guided by community input and built by the Seattle-based company Grindline.

Grindline has also designed skateparks in Seattle, Snoqualmie, Issaquah and across the country.

It replaced an old 6,000 square foot facility with a single skating bowl. The new park has features for all skill levels as well as a central gathering area and is some 13,000 square feet.

The skatepark is located on the southwest side of Torguson Park near the main parking plaza. While the park is complete, landscaping around it is still ongoing. The park is open during daylight hours.

The park is owned by North Bend and managed by Si View Metropolitan Park District. The total cost for the park was estimated at $700,000 in 2019, and was funded by a Si View Metro Parks capital bond.

Torguson Park also houses several ball fields, a playground and a climbing tower along with other amenities.
