One for beginners City making plans for Skate Park expansion STACY GOODMAN Pness REPORTER An addition to the hugely popular Skate Park would give less-skilled skaters an obstacle-filled area all their own. The city Parks and Recreation Department last year received a $50,000 grant from King County for improv- ing the Skate Park. City matching funds, in-kind dona— tions and grants from community members have boosted the budget to $83,000. “We want to have a flat area with street obstacles,” said Al Erickson, city parks and recreation manager. “We want to try to develop an area where the beginners and less-advanced (skaters) will have a place to practice.” The Skate Park will be expanded by 2,400 square feet to the area between the park and Community Center parking lot. The new area has yet to be designed, but plans are to add the obstacles that usually attract skaters —— curbs, steps and a concrete railing. Some of the money also will be used to install an 8- foot-high chain link fence around the entire park and a lockable gate, to prevent skaters from using it during hours other than 8 a.m. to dusk. The idea is to lock the fence during the hours it’s not supposed to be in use. Since the Skate Park opened last July, neighbors have complained about midnight skating, af/aeeforyou What are the four i needed to support y rlife“ parking lot. Members of the purpose?

We’re still getting trouble. We’re trying to control that with the fence.” Skaters Association also have been working with parks staff and police to correct behavior at the park, Erickson said. One idea for improving the park had been to install a roof so the park could be used on even the rainiest days. But Erickson said the cost would have been “massive.” Erickson anticipated the addition could be built by fall. ‘Children of the Mines’ at Train Depot Tuesday The Issquah Historical Society will present a program called “Children of the Mines” just after a 7 pm. business meeting Tuesday at the historical Train Depot.
