A new organization called “CDAsk8prk” is beginning a fundraising campaign to generate enough money to build a new skateboard structure at McEuen Park. Nathan “Ope” Baker, acting director of the organization, said the first event, “Go Skate Day,” will be this Saturday from 2 p.m. to dusk at the existing skateboard park behind Memorial Field. “Our current goal is to get the design money together,” he said. “That will cost between $15,000 and $17,000.” The event will feature a number of skating competitions and other fun activities, Baker said. There will also be a large garage sale and food vendors on site for Go Skate Day/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Would you like to see a Skate Park opened at McEuen Park?
