Poughkeepsie Skate Park Looks To Make Additional Upgrades

Several months back the local community rallied and raised money to restore the Poughkeepsie skate park in Waryas Park. The work cost around $4,000 and now that it’s done, what comes next for the skate park?

The goal is to have it completely redone with a more durable material, concrete. The video below, produced by J. Butler and co-produced/starring Nick Colon, runs down what has been accomplished at the skate park and what remains to be done. Let’s face it, there’s not a lot of good places for kids to go hang out after school. But the skate park is very popular with people as young as 6 and all the way up to 50.

To contribute to the cause, visit the ‘Save The Poughkeepsie Skate Park’ Facebook page where you’ll find a link to the Go Fund Me page. They are still well shy of their goal so anything you can do to help is appreciate.
