69SUMMER 2013 • NATURALLY FUNTIMES MAGAZINECody Rocamontes was 15 years old and fearless.The Martin High School sophomore would lug his skateboardeverywhere, jumping steep stairs, rails and ramps withoutthinking twice. He and his friends dreamt of somedaystarting a public skate park in Arlington.In August 2009, Cody was struck by a car and killedwhile walking near Interstate-20 to one of his favoriteskateboarding stops, a retail parking lot.On March 13, 2013, his dream became reality. Cody’sfriends and family gathered with Arlington communitymembers to dedicate the new Cody RocamontesMemorial Skate Park in Randol Mill Park.March 13thwould have been Cody’s 19th birthday.The new 5,400-square foot skatepark — which is the firstin Arlington — includes skating and BMX challenges forbeginner and intermediate users.The first phase of the park includes such features as ahipped bank, a manual pad with rail, a flat bar and parkbuilder Spohn Ranch’s signature “skateable art” piecesCurved Taco and Dragon Trail.The second phase will include a mellow ledge, stair setwith rail, pole jam, euro gap, kinked hubba, round wall andbent penny.An estimated 18,000 people in Arlington skateboard morethan once a week, and two-thirds of respondents to a citysurvey said they skate on Arlington streets rather than atskateparks in other cities.Just ask 14-year-old George Talevera, of Arlington, whogrew up skating on streets around the city but now hangsout at the new park almost every weekend.“It’s a lot safer and a lot more fun,” Talevera said. “We’rejust excited to have a place to skate.”Taylor Haster, 18, of Arlington, recalled trying to trackdown places to skate, then being kicked out of numerousbusiness parking lots.“We finally have a home,” she said.On Tuesday, skaters of all levels showed off their moves andfeasted on grilled hot dogs and birthday cake for Cody.Attendees sang Happy Birthday and released orangeballoons for the teenager’s favorite color.Before a ribbon cutting, city leaders praised the work ofCody’s friends and family, who lobbied Arlington CityCouncil and raised money to build the skate park. Theyeven established a nonprofit, Cody Rocamontes Inc., anddistributed hundreds of orange shirts all over Arlington.“We’re here to celebrate the life of Cody,” Arlington MayorRobert Cluck said. “We should never forget Cody or hisparents, and we will be reminded of them every time wecome to this park.” BY SARAH BAHARI, City of ArlingtonCody would have been beside himself. He would have been here all the time. This is just fabulous.” KIM GROBE, Mother of Cody Rocamontes“C O D Y R O C A M O N T E S M E M O R I A LSKATE PARKPARK SPOTLIGHTS
