SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -- The gnarliest new attraction in Sand Springs passed a major milestone Thursday.
Crews started pouring concrete at the site of the city's new skate park.
It wasn't the usual gray concrete. It's tinted an earth tone, instead.
The 6,000-square-foot park will also double as a retention pond to help control flood water during heavy rain.
The project is being paid for by private donations and fundraising, including a grant from skateboarding star Tony Hawk's foundation.
It's on schedule to be finished by Christmas.
