Charleston’s city parks department has closed the Ackerman Skate Park at 55 Sycamore Drive in West Ashley because of what they termed as “equipment failure” on the two ramps.

City staff members are working with the manufacturer for replacement parts which are expected to arrive soon, officials said Thursday.

Repairs should begin the week of Feb. 17 and the park will re-open as soon as the work is complete. The Skate Park will remain closed until then.

The adjacent dog park, fields and other sections of the park will remain open.
