“What a wonderfully rewarding experience to see this park finally reach its goal,” Mayor Blais said in a prepared statement.
Patricia Dow also said she was pleased the skatepark would soon be a reality for the not only the local skaters, but for visitors.
“It’s really exciting to know this skatepark will be developed this fall,” she said, “particularly for the youth now graduated from high school, seeing the culmination of their years of involvement in this project.”
