Skate park construction begins this month


Construction is scheduled to start this month on a new skate park in Wenatchee’s Hale Park.

The project is designed by local skaters and Grindline and should be completed and ready to skate by the end of July.

Funding for the $279,000 project is coming from State Recreation Conservation Office Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and Federal Land and Water Conservation fund grants.

The final phase of park construction including restrooms, play equipment, picnic shelter, additional landscaping and security cameras will get underway next spring.
