Skaters Push for New Park

3-11-06 – Skaters gathered in Ardmore Saturday to raise money for a new skate park. The Parks and Recreation Department, with help from local business owners, is working to raise funds for a skate park.

Skaters from as far as Edmond, Oklahoma showed off for crowds on Main Street Saturday.

The skate park would cost just over $350,000. The state is willing to match up to $174,000. The rest of the money would have to be raised by supporters.

Saturday’s event raised more than $1,500 for the proposed park.
