Matt Arment has been a skateboarder for 30 years and built about 20 skate parks, including ones in Steelton and York, Pennsylvania.
He has been hired by the Rotary Club of Southern Frederick County to design and build a new pump track next to the skateboard ramp in Urbana Community Park.
The track will be multi-use for skateboards, Rollerblades, bicycles and scooters.
He describes a pump track as a circular concrete path with dips and rises that allows skaters to keep moving through inertia by shifting their weight as they roll forward.
According to Jeremy Kortright, division director for Frederick County Parks and Recreation, the Rotary Club approached them about building the pump track next to the skate ramp they built in 2017.
The plan was approved by the county last fall and has been funded entirely by the Rotary Club.
Arment says that, weather permitting, the track could be completed by the end of this month.
