Public gives opinions on new skate park to designers

Posted: Updated:

A public meeting was held Tuesday night with the company that will design and construct Owensboro's newest park.

The city announced earlier in April, Spohn Ranch Skateparks will design and build a skate park inside Chautauqua Park. The groundbreaking will be in June and the skate park should be completed by the end of this year.

The public had the chance to tell the company and city what they would like to see in the skate  park before the firm comes up with a final design.

"I just came here to give a little bit of my input. I have been skating for about 13 years, so I have seen quite a few parks and a lot of other people to have good ideas for it," Elliot Carter said.

The final design will be presented to the Owensboro Parks and Recreation Department.
