NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The opening has been delayed for a New Orleans skate park launched by Lil Wayne and corporate sponsors.
Organizers at a Sept. 26 ribbon-cutting said the park would open to the public on Oct. 1, but McLendon says the insurance and staff needed to run the facility could not be lined up in time.
McLendon says the public will be able to use the park starting Oct. 27.
The Grammy-winning rapper partnered with Mountain Dew and Glu Agency, a New York-based advertising firm, to launch the park, which was built with recycled materials provided by Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation.
