Parks and Recreation seeks community input for new wheelpark

A community outreach workshop scheduled for Wednesday May 27 at 6:00 p.m. at Spokane City Hall will help determine the location and terrain for a new wheelpark in Spokane.

The workshop will be hosted in partnership with the Spokane Parks and Recreation Division and Gridline Skatepark, Inc.

The meeting is open to the public, and all interested community members are invited and encouraged to attend.

“A very important part of the process of designing any new recreational activity location is for us to hear what our community wants to see in that location,” said Parks and Recreation Director Leroy Eadie. “What will the terrain look like? Where should a wheelpark fit into our park system? Should it be incorporated into Riverfront Park? These are some of the questions we will be asking the community.”

“We are very excited to be a part of the design for a new wheelpark in Spokane,” said Matt Fluegge with Gridline Skateparks, Inc. “We have designed and constructed over 250 skateparks worldwide, and we are eager to apply our terrain knowledge to this project.”

Spokane Park Board members, Park’s Division leaders and representatives from Gridline Skatepark, Inc. will be on hand to respond to questions and gather feedback.
