On February 20th, 2018, The Sherwood City Council decided to move forward with applying for a grant to build a skate park in Sherwood. Late that year the grant was approved. As we move forward with a groundbreaking in the spring of 2019, we need to make sure that we are working with our partner the YMCA and the community to get this right.
Beyond the planning work that the city has completed, there is a lot of great material on the internet about community skate parks and other examples of skate parks being located at YMCA facilities and city-run facilities. I have included links to some of the more interesting information on this page.
The last point is the most important. Your desires as a community are most important. With that in mind, I ran a poll on facebook to help get citizen feedback. 384 people responded to the poll. The poll results are on this page.
I also encourage you to review the comments that were given at the public workshop that was held on the subject.
As this project moves forward I will provide updates in the blog below.
