The skate board park is located between Dexter Street and Glenridge
Drive. The park includes multiple ramps, a half pipe, rail, and 2 trash
receptacles. This park is heavily used.
since the park has been created, the city has experienced a high rate
of vandalism at the park. In the past, concrete trash containers have
been broken, port-a-potties have been destroyed so many times that the
contractor refuses to place a port-a-potty at the site, signs and picnic
tables have been destroyed, and other acts of vandalism have occurred.
We realize that this is a popular hang-out but the city is reluctant to
spend any more money on the park due to the vandalism.
The Parks Committee has authorized minor repairs to be done to the park.
However, if the teenagers in Prescott would like other improvements
made, we will need your help. We ask that a group of teenagers that use
the park to form a group, develop a plan for improvements, present the
improvements to the Parks Committee for their approval, fundraise for
50% of the improvements, and agree to monitor the park so that the
vandalism and destruction will stop. The Parks Committee is willing to
work with anyone that uses the skate board park.
