Youths still ride at deteriorating skate/bike park

July 10, 2012

There still is daily activity at the skate/bike park in Kane despite deteriorated conditions that are expected to remain indefinitely.
The Kane Borough Council at this time has no plans-- and no money-- to again repair the facility built in 2004.
Speaking at a meeting last week, Council President Howard Kane said a fundraising drive would be the only way to come up with money to fix the popular recreational site.
The borough in 2004 used $31,818 from a federal community development block grant (CDBG) to buy materials for the skate/bike facility at Glenwood Park on Hacker Street.
