AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) -- The American Fork skate park is expected to open next month.
The city's chief of staff, Melanie Marsh, says people are eager to get in.
A grand opening is planned for mid- to late September but the gates might be unlocked a little earlier.
The park's not quite ready. It still needs sprinklers, for example.
Bryce Reinhold of Frontside Skate Shop says he gets about 20 calls a day from people asking when the park will open. The construction of the skateboard part of the park has been finished since spring.
He says he thinks an opening is long past due.
Marsh says one of the reasons for the delay is that the city wants it to be one of the best parks in the state, and that has taken a little longer.
