As of November 2008, the State Fairgrounds has provided the temporary use of in their 4-H barn for a skate park. They've supplied ramps, electricity (lights for evening use), and an employee to help facilitate operations.

That's fantastic! Our skate parks are all outdoor, but our weather can handle it.

Neat that they have a place to skate. They use the church parking lot and steps around here. I think what they can do is amazing. Neat shot in mid air.
