Skate park ready, site unknown
At this point, plans on design and placement are in the preliminary stage.

Skaters hit right on the financial mark with their requests during a skate park input session held in February. At this time, the skate park cost hovers at $90,000.
“The design changes that resulted from the community input meeting came in just at budget, which is good news,” said Trevor Galligan, Friends of the Greenway president.
An input session was held in February to allow users of the park to voice what amenities they would like to see located there. For more than an hour, approximately 40 local skaters reviewed the various options with American Ramp Company using a virtual session that allows skaters to see a computer-generated image of what the park would look like and any suggested changes were made as the group watched.
The grant is for $90,000 and was received by Friends of the Greenway from The Steven and Kate Smith Community Trust with the stipulation the skate park be named after the couple. First National Bank distributes grants once a year to eligible nonprofit organizations.
Placement of the park is still unknown. However, skaters at the input session were adamant they did not want the park to be placed at Rocket Park, a suggestion made by McMinnville Parks and Recreation assistant director Justin Scott and instead, requested it be more centrally located at the Civic Center.
Galligan says once the decision on placement is made, construction can begin.
At this point, plans on design and placement are in the preliminary stage and changes can still be made to either.
