New Skate Park to “Kick Flip” Downtown Des Moines

DES MOINES, IOWA – Community Choice Credit Union is pleased to announce its support of downtown’s newest attraction, Lauridsen Skate Park. Located on 2-acres of gorgeous riverfront property, the 70,000 square foot park will include several obstacles such as a two tiered 300 foot snake-run, skate bowls, a skateable sculpture, and a lower plaza. Lauridsen Skate Park will be one of the largest skate parks in the nation, making it Des Moines’ hottest new place to skate, observe, and socialize for people of all ages within the community.

This exciting new attraction is multifaceted providing the ability to host a variety events including competitions and outdoor concerts. It is an attraction that will not only bring more life to Des Moines’ already active community, but also give the city an economic boost.
“Community Choice is excited to be a part of the revitalization efforts along Principal Riverwalk to bring world-class, state of the art recreational amenities to our region,” said Josh Cook, CEO at Community Choice Credit Union.

“We are committed to keeping the Des Moines area vibrant. Our investment in Lauridsen Skate Park helps to provide unique experiences and opportunities for both our members and the community.

Community Choice will serve as the “Amoeba Pool” sponsor, one of the key skating components that will make up the park.

Lauridsen Skate Park broke ground in October and is expected to open for public use sometime next year. For more information on how you can get involved in the park or where you can donate, please visit
