Madison skate park approved


MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County could be getting a new park, a skate park, that is.

The Dane County Parks Commission approved a grant of $200,000 to build a skate park in Madison.

It would be part of Madison's Central Park on the near east side.

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi was there Monday to support the project.

"We're hopeful that the county's commitment will encourage other people to also invest in this project that's been moving forward and with this boost of $200,000 will get us closer to the end goal."

Organizers have raised about two-thirds of the $750,000 needed to build the park.
