GONZALES, LA (FOX44) - Ascension Parish Lawmakers and local skaters teamed up Saturday for the grand opening of a brand new skate park.
Local skater Branden Bennett says this skate park came from a lot of hard work. He says he sat in on meetings and worked with the Gonzales city council to finally get it open.
People that came out to the opening enjoyed a live band, skate competitions, and free Jambalaya.
Bennett says all his effort, was all for the kids.
"It's fun coming out here, and you're seeing these little dudes and you see kids having fun, in it from age six to even adults," said Bennett.
