The MSA was, once again, stoked to step up to the plate and help out the town of Polson, MT with their efforts of furthering skateboarding. A number of years ago, we funded a portion of the Dreamland-built Polson park, which featured the first-ever concrete “helmet” to skate. Since that build, the park has seen its share of rippers coming through and giving it a run for it’s money.
On August 7, 2021, after the on-the-ground crew in Polson fundraised tirelessly for years, and the MSA kicked in more funding, and Dreamland Skateparks poured and smoothed new concrete, Phase II was opened to the public. Featuring significant street features on the north and west sides, the existing park now can breathe a bit easier as skaters of all abilities can now work their street skills with the added hubbas, rails, ledges, a vert wall, and some stairs.
Also in the mix during the opening was George Cutright, founder of Polson’s original 7th and 7th skatepark. A longtime MT skater and close friend of the MSA, George has not only given his time and effort to Polson’s skate scene, he has kicked in a bunch of funds as well. The plaque with his name on it in the new concrete is well deserved.
