The padlocks are officially off of the H. Odell Weeks Activities Centerís skate park after indoor skatepark HIC Warehouse won the auction Wednesday.

The sale was confirmed by Recreation Superintendent of the City of Aiken Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department Kim Coleman.

HIC Warehouse posted to their Facebook account that anyone willing to help move skate ramps today can call Bryan at 803-349-5148.

The skatepark had gone back on the market last week after multiple failed attempts to secure a successful sale. Last year, Odell Weeks closed the skate park because too few people were utilizing it.

The skate park is located behind Odell Weeks at 1700 Whiskey Road.
