ODESSA - Just in time for the sweltering heat, the skate park in Odessa got a little cooler.

Skaters will have it made in the shade thanks to new shade structures at the Sherwood Park skate park.

Grants from the Odessa Downtown Lions Club, the Park Foundation, and the city footed the bill.

"We have some very nice architectural shade structures that I think both the skaters and people watching will really enjoy it at the skate park," Odessa Parks and Recreation Director, Steve Patton, said.

The shade structures only took a couple of months to build.
