Saranac Lake Skateboard Park Breaks Ground Next Week

The Village of Saranac Lake will see a groundbreaking on the new Skate Park in the center of town.. Rich Shapiro is one of the volunteers spearheading the project which after more than 10 years of work, may in fact become a reality this fall.. “The DPW schedule has the skate park on their list for Next Week and so we’re finally breaking ground on the project,” Shapiro said “And there are a few minor issues to work out including getting permission from the Enterprise to move items across their property during construction but for the most part we’re ready.”  The Village will be in charge of site preparation and a local contractor is in charge of the retaining walls.. and Shapiro says the fundraising is continuing and while they’re well on their way to the goal, there is still some work to do but they have received support from many local businesses and residents.. “We have about $40,000 in “in kind” donations from local businesses who are helping to make this project a reality.” Shapiro said.  If all goes well, the grand opening of the Skate Park will be announced in Early September..
