A local skateboard group, PUSH, or Promoting Urban Skate Habitats, has agreed to work with the Bend Parks and Recreation District to develop of new skate park next year and help with more skateparks in the  future.

 

At Tuesday night's Bend Park and Rec Board meeting, member Dallas Brown says the District is only dedicated to the one skatepark right now, at Ponderosa Park on Southeast 15th Street.  "Well, the money's already been budgeted for the Ponderosa Park, and the future parks we'll have to include in the future budgets. There’s no money right now that's been allocated for any future skateparks besides the Ponderosa one. But part of the commitment from PUSH is that they'll supply some funds for future skatepark development as well. So it will be a public-private joint partnership, where they would be able to raise money. And they're looking at going after corporate sponsors and some various things to be able to contribute to some future development."

 

Brown says PUSH also wants to help develop many more skateparks in the city in the future.

 

They expect construction at Ponderosa Park should begin next summer
