Back in November, a press release from Councilmember George Myer’s office indicated that the city had budgeted $500,000 for a new skate park in Berry Hill Park at the former location of the Berry Hill Park pool, located off of Man O’ War Blvd. and Buckhorn Dr.
As of March, Dreamland Skateparks has agreed upon a contract to design and build the park with the budget allocated by the city.
Dreamland Skateparks is based out of Oregon, and claim to have over twenty years of experience with concrete park construction.
George Myer, along with Friends for Skateparks, a local organization that aims to increase the amount of areas designated specifically for action sports, plan to increase the total funds to $1,000,000 through private donations.
Plans to begin construction are currently set for this summer.
