Grassroots Group, Cary Agree To Fund Proposed Skate Park

Posted July 14, 2000

— Skateboarders in Cary are one step closer to having a place to roll.

The town held a public input session Saturday on the planned skate park. The proposed park will cost about $200,000 to build.

A grassroots group called Sk8-Cary will raise $30,000. The town will pay for the rest.

Parents say they like the idea of kids helping to fund the park.

"There's probably a persona for skateboarding that needs to be overcome. I think by the kids raising the money and being involved in opening the skateboard park, we have an idea that these are good kids," says parent Kathleen Tobin. "They are focused kids, and they want to do the right thing. They want a skate park."

The town hopes to open the park sometime next year. -->
