Nashua skateboard fans hoping for new park
On Tuesday, the Board of Aldermen was presented with a proposed resolution that would appropriate $270,000 into a new trust fund designed to help relocate the skate park.
The David W. Deane Skateboard Park was built in 2000 for about $120,000, and is popular throughout New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Deane said Tuesday that his committee is working hard to ensure a future skate park will be built, but it could take some time to make sure it is done correctly.“We have met with a contractor and we are still looking at the design for the new park,” said Deane, adding die-hard skateboarders will be providing their insight on the plans.The total price-tag, however, has yet to be determined, explained Deane. But the $270,000, if approved, would at least cover a portion of the cost to relocate the facility, he added.
