Skateboarding has been a big part of Coeur d’Alene over the past twenty years with the introduction of the downtown skatepark constructed in 1995.
The adults and youth of our area need a venue to practice these activities that is safe and local. Skateparks are a place in which friends are made, tricks are learned, and a bond is formed within the community. Skateparks often reduce illicit behavior and damage to private property.
Over the past six years, a local group of skateboard and bike enthusiasts worked to raise awareness of this need and desire. Through this effort, funds were secured for conceptual drawings to include a new skatepark into the Four Corners project.
The City of Coeur d’Alene and Ignite CdA support this project and have funded Phase I, to start construction summer of 2018.
FUNDING is needed for Phase II, which includes the bowl.
In partnership with Panhandle Parks Foundation, your tax-deductible donation will help construct this project for skateboarding and bike riding for the next generation.
