Connel Street Skate Park

Connel Street Skate Park was built on the site of the old McCoya Manufacturing plant. The McCoya plant manufactured airplane parts during WWII and went on to become a premier supplier for aircraft parts in the next half century. Due to taxing regulations, McGoya moved its manufacturing hub to the Alliance Corridor north of Fort Worth, Texas, leaving the old facility behind. The existing building was razed, the site was donated to the city, and Bay City elected to put in the skate park as a draw for youth in this struggling section of Old Town.

The skate park is sponsored by Corona Tower as part of its annual tax abatement from Bay City with additional sponsorships from the smaller businesses in Uptown, including Masti's, Swizzel's Shoes, and The Luncheon Lady.

We first visit the skate park in Book 1 of The Human-Hybrid Project, Shattered by Glass.
