To the editor:
Kudos to the village board on the passing of the skatepark location! The Saranac Lake SkatePark Committee has worked tirelessly to make this happen, and I thank you.
As the parent of three active boys, outdoor activities are a large part of my family's recreation. The proposed skatepark will add to the many outdoor activities already available to locals and visitors. In my family travels, we have visited skateparks in Rye, N.H.; Winter Park, Colo.; and Kennebunk, Maine, to name a few. Each time we visit a new town with a skatepark, we are happy to have another activity to add to the day. I believe many visitors to Saranac Lake will feel the same way about our skatepark.
Thank you, village board, for helping make the Saranac Lake Skatepark a reality!
