Survey Mailed to Determine New Skate Park Location

Post Date:02/14/2019 10:18 AM
Sioux City residents will have the opportunity to voice their opinion on whether a second location for a new public skate park should be considered. The Parks and Recreation Department has developed a Skate Park survey to determine if a new facility should be considered at Riverside Park (1301 Riverside Boulevard), Fairmount Park (300 Irene Street), or Leif Erikson Park (31st and Court Streets). The idea for a second skate park location was brought forward by the local skate park organization.

The Skate Park survey will be sent to 66 residents (those residing near the park properties) who will be asked if they would like to have a new skate park built at one of the park locations.
Currently, Cook Park located at 505 Market Street, has the City’s only skate park. Opened to the public August 2001, the skate park in Cook Park has serviced the community and skaters for many years. The park features a 7-foot deep bowl, clover bowl, and other amenities. Skate Parks are typically made for skateboarding, BMX, and inline skating and may contain various elements to include handrails, vertical ramps, bowls, banked ramps, and several other elements.

The survey will be mailed with a return date of March 1, 2019. The completed surveys can be returned via a provided postage paid envelope. For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation office at 712-279-6126.
