Skaters in Flour Bluff are ready for a new skate park set to go in at Wranosky Park.
The effort already has generated donations from a number of groups willing to help the City with the funding.
Everyone is invited to come and give their ideas on what the skatepark should look like at a 6 p.m. meeting on Thursday, at the Ethel Eyerly Senior Center on Graham Road.
The City's Parks Department and private donors are paying to construct the skatepark at Wranosky Park, which is located on Graham Road between Waldron Road and Laguna Shores. Some of those donors include Highland Property Development and the Flour Bluff Lions Club and Business Association.
"Right now, we have around $80 thousand and $90 thousand, between all the parties that have come together that will get us started," parks director Michael Morris said. "That will be a small skate park. It will be nowhere near the size of Cole Park. It might be a third of that size. It will be smaller, but the hope is it will be built so that it can be added to."
So as more money is raised in the future, the skate park could be expanded.
Officials believe construction would begin around October.
