Skate park proposed for city of Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A proposal before the Eau Claire City Council could lead to a new skate park in Eau Claire.

The city's Parks, Recreation and Forestry director says skateboarders have been damaging parts of Phoenix and Carson parks. The department says it's been approached several times by skateboarders about creating a park.  The YMCA currently has a skateboarding facility, but charges a fee to use it.

The proposal will be discussed at Monday night's city council meeting. That starts at 7 p.m.
