The new skatepark at Ponderosa Park is one step closer to reality.

 

Wednesday night, Bend Park and Rec District held a workshop with the parks design consultant and all interested parties to gather information on what users would like to see in the new park.

 

Matt Mercer, the Recreation Director says they are looking at a long-range plan for future skateparks.

 

"It’s our long range plan to have a system of skateparks in the community. I think they will all be developed based on strong public input. One of the key things we're going to be doing is communicating with people throughout this project is that this is not the one and only skatepark, we're going to be developing. As a result, we don't need one skatepark to be the end-all for everybody."

 

Mercer says they have also launched a Facebook page where they will post updates and meeting times, as well and receive comments from anyone who wants to get involved in the planning of the new skatepark.
