Lan-Oak Park District Reopens Skate Park!
25 October 2011 2 Comments
The Lansing Skate Park located at Bock Park was reopened Sunday October 9. The Park was filled with several dozen youths with bikes and skateboards. Resident T.J. Grossi and several friends volunteered their time to install new Skate-Lite Pro, a surface used to cover skate park structures. Grossi, a skater himself, is involved in a Skate ministry associated with Living Word Church. Grossi said "Its important that these kids have a place to meet and can avoid wandering." Park Director John Wilson and park officials served Hotdogs and treats to those in attendance. Wilson said the District spent about $8,000 for the supplies necessary to bring the skatepark back to usable condition and that next spring the Lan-Oak Park District was planning to reseal the ground surface as well. The Skate Park was originally opened in 2001.
