We are very close to building the kids a fun, safe, successful skateboard facility here in Saranac Lake. The SL skateboarders are our sons and daughters, our nieces and nephews, and our grandkids. By building the SL SkatePark in a central location, we will invest in our downtown and give kids a place to play as their parents and grandparents shop. Skateboarding provides a healthy activity that is fun to watch. The SkatePark will attract families to spend time downtown, which is good for restaurants and good for business. Building the SkatePark lets our kids know the community cares about them.
