PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County Park and Recreation District is looking for community input on the final design of the skate park in Ochoco Creek Park. Executive Director Duane Garner says residents can find out about the project and interact with representatives from Dreamland Skate Parks at a community meeting on Thursday, "This will be an opportunity for [people] to interact with the designers and share what their thoughts are, and the designers can interact with them. This is an opportunity to interact with the professionals to come up with a design that works well in Prineville."
Garner says this project has been in the works for more than three years. "We, this last year, landed a local government grant through the state and are going to be able to basically rehabilitate and then double the size of our skate park, here in Prineville." He tells KBND News, "We have a conceptual layout, but we're moving forward with construction prints, so this is kind of the last design meeting for folks to have input in all the particulars." That meeting begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, at Pioneer School. Garner hopes the project goes out to bid this winter and is completed by June of 2019.
