One of the great things about our success building the Ann Arbor Skate Park has been networking and strategizing with people in other communities who are on similar journeys. Now that our park is done and raging on a regular basis, we want to continue to give attention and support to people in other communities who are doing their part to create the current second golden age of public skate parks.
Alex Aho, who was an early trooper for the Ann Arbor project, is now working hard with other folks from Houghton MI to get their park build. Be sure to follow their progress and even get involved in the work. You can find them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/SkateparkHoton and on Instagram @houghtonmiskatepark.
We are also stoked to hear that Katie Noble Churchill and our friends on Mount Desert Island, ME, are ready to break ground on the first phase of their new park! Check out their plans at http://www.facebook.com/MDI-Skatepark-Association, and add a visit to their park to your summer road trip itinerary!
If you’re reading this post we hope you will reach out and support these and similar efforts, and hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know about the public park project in your area!
