BRECKENRIDGE — The Breckenridge Recreation Center skatepark celebrated its new shade structure Saturday morning with a bowl and street competition for local youths 14 and younger.

The shade structure serves as a sort of finishing touch for the renovated skatepark by the Breckenridge Recreation Center. The renovated park was completed in October 2014 after a group of local skateboard enthusiasts proposed a renovation.

The Breckenridge Town Council approved the renovation with the caveat that after the park was built the community would fundraise for a shade structure. The community then raised $10,000.

Kids 14 and younger compete in the Battle Royal skateboarding competition Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Breckenridge skatepark.
