The Baraboo Skatepark is in desperate need of replacement
We have reached out to many local businesses and are in the process of applying for grants, but we would like to crowd fund a $50,000 of the overall $300,000 goal. Thats where you guys come in!
The park was built in 2002 with a combination of community and city donations at a time when most small towns did not yet have skateparks.. Unfortunately the park has not stood the test of time and is in need of replacement. The concrete is showing its age, original wooden ramps have deteriorated and were removed; leaving the park DIFFICULT and UNSAFE for this new generation.
Fortunately, over the last 20 years there has been unbelievable growth and innovation in skatepark design. This growth has spawned many respected companies that travel the country building beautiful and professional skateparks.These new parks mostly fall into the category of “Plaza” type parks and no longer look like an eyesore but rather a compliment to its surroundings.We have received a few potential design estimates that have helped determine a fundraising goal of $300,000.
Jimmy Kimball, Owner of The Baraboo Social Club, and Trent Capaul from The Kindness Skateboard Shop have registered the Baraboo Community Skatepark Inc. as a 501(c)(3).
We are working together with the City of Baraboo Parks Department to raise money to reach our goal.
