Skate park plan needs backing
The New Richmond Area YMCA is starting to ramp up its fund raising efforts for a new city skate park.
If all goes according to plan, the new facility will be playing host to skateboarders, in-line skaters and BMX bikers by this summer. The park will be located next to the New Richmond Sports Center.
According to YMCA director Darian Blattner, the design for the new skate park is completed. Preliminary plans lay out a three-phase project.
