Location yet to be determined
Thursdays skate park planning session at City Hall attracted individuals of all ages, including Carter Alsbrook, 1, who entertained himself with a skateboard from one of the skaters. He was in attendance with his mother, Alderman Kate Alsbrook.
It was all hands on deck during Thursday night’s skate park planning session.Approximately 40 local skaters, elected officials and individuals interested in a proposed plan to establish a skate park in the city were in attendance. The session was arranged to obtain feedback from skaters on what amenities they would like.When asked about possible placement of the skate park, McMinnville Parks and Recreation assistant director Justin Scott said one consideration was constructing it at Rocket Park because that park could be undergoing an extensive renovation in the near future. The skaters were adamant against that.“Please don’t place it there,” said one skater.
