Gateway Parks holds grand opening at Alpine Hills

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -  Wednesday's snow made things a little bit better at today's grand opening of Gateway Parks at Alpine Hills.

The parks actually opened for the season December 20th, but this was a day special guests and neighbors could test out the new snow park with some free tubing.

Aside from that, the park also offers snowboarding and skiing opportunities...

"This is great for the community. It's local. We've got a lot of community support, and we are totally ready to cater to the Rockford area," said Thomas Zarichney, operations manager. 

Gateway has three tubing lanes open, as well as plenty of other amenities.

The park district notes the next closest place to participate in these snow sports is in Wisconsin.
