The MUK Opens for the Season with Expanded Options for Local Skaters

MUKILTEO, WA. May 11, 2023 – The MUK skate park, located at the Mukilteo Family YMCA (10601 47th Pl W, Mukilteo, WA 98275), has opened for the season offering safe, supervised skating for local kids of all ages. The park recently completed renovations to add new obstacles and ramps to accommodate all skill levels, providing a linear progression for those learning to skate through advanced riders.

“We are excited to open our park to the community for the spring and summer months,” said Jason Maki, Skate Park Director. “I want people to know about this rare gem we have right in our backyard.”

The MUK is one of the largest outdoor parks in Washington state, featuring all elements of a traditional skate park, but with the addition of trained, caring instructors providing supervision at all times. The Y’s skate park is the only staffed skate facility in Snohomish County.

“It’s a fun skate park, but it’s also a safe place to go,” said Maki. “Our instructors are our most valuable asset. Adults sending their kids to skate can have peace of mind and assurance knowing their kids will be safe and cared for while doing something they love.”

The MUK offers open skating, but also has a variety of camps, lessons, and events for every skill level. Beginning skaters can start with lessons, while more advanced skaters can join the skate team, allowing them to continue to progress at an accelerated pace in a collaborative environment and showcase their skills at local competitions. The park and its programming has something for everyone, including The MUK games competition on July 21-23, 2023.

“Our recent project fills a gap we’ve had at the park,” said Maki. “We’ve had lots of big ramps, but not a lot of smaller ramps and beginner obstacles. The new features will accommodate our biggest demographic and allow riders to progress in a safe manner as they build their skate skills.”

Use of The MUK is free with a YMCA facility membership. Monthly and daily skate park passes can be purchased at the Mukilteo Y Welcome Center. Helmets are required and helmets, pads, scooters and skateboards can be borrowed for no additional cost.

“I would encourage anyone to come and try skating,” said Maki. “It builds confidence, teaches problem solving, creativity, and expressionism, and helps you see in the world from a different perspective. Skateboarding allows you to be yourself.”
