Skateboarders could soon practice grinds, kickflips and ollies at a new skatepark.
Reflecting a long-held community desire to offer skaters a better place to ride, the Issaquah City Council has agreed to include $350,000 in the 2014 City budget to start developing a new skatepark at a more visible location.
The existing skatepark, behind the Issaquah Community Center, is aging and is not widely used due to concerns about the secluded location.
As we start to plan for a new skatepark and discuss the 2014 City budget, we want to hear from you. Use #isskate to share your ideas and thoughts for a new skatepark.
With our planned skatepark, we want to provide the most fun — and safest — experience possible for our skaters, and include amenities for skaters of all skill levels. Learn more about the ongoing effort at our project website.
