After several years of eagerly waiting, the Cullman community welcomed the city’s newest addition—Skate Depot—with a ribbon cutting and grand opening on Saturday, November 12.

A large crowd gathered for the unveiling and a skateboard demo by Red Bull pro skater Jake Wooten. Wooten also signed and gave away 20 custom commemorative boards.

A project by the City of Cullman and Cullman Parks, Recreation and Sports Tourism (SPRST), Skate Depot was made possible by the Rob Whitesell family who donated $50K for the project pending that a 100% match could be made. The community didn’t just match the donation—they exceeded it.

  • $40K was donated by the Cullman Rotary Club
  • $30K was donated by The CPRST Foundation
  • $120K was raised in private donations
