Skate/bike ramps again see heavy traffic

August 9, 2012

Young people in the Kane community were faced with an ultimatum and they responded in remarkable fashion.
With the help of concerned adults and donations from businesses and individuals, the youths have repaired the skate/bike ramps at Glenwood Park on Hacker Street.
The borough last fall closed the facility due to the deteriorated condition of the wooden structure.
Claiming it doesn't have the money to make repairs, the Kane Borough Council basically told the youths to raise the money and fix the ramps themselves.

The brush drop-off site at Glenwood Park in Kane has been closed, Kane Borough Streets Department Foreman Mike Beane said Tuesday.

Youths lead efforts to repair skate/bike park

Several Kane area youths are leading efforts to again repair the wooden skate/bike ramps at Glenwood Park on Hacker Street.
Volunteers led by former Kane borough councilman Bob O’Rourke built the facility in 2004.
