K.I.D.S. – KIDS IN DUBUQUE SKATE
Dubuque’s New Outdoor Skate Park
$600,000 has been already allocated to the design and implementation of a new skate park in Dubuque Iowa. Plans are being drawn and we will need to fundraise an additional $250,000 to get the park of our dreams. You can be part of the process: share this page, attend a meeting, comment on designs, help with fundraising and attend events. This will be YOUR park.
The location chosen is Flora Park in an area near the west end of the park. This park will be available to all ages, free of charge for outdoor recreation and exercise. Skating increases motor skills and creates camraderie between various age groups as experienced skaters help the novices. You can be part of this exciting campaign with your private or corporate matched donation today!
“Having a facility like this is just going to be so much better for the younger kids that are getting into (action sports) now. They’re going to have a world-class facility in their own town and the potential for progression is going to be crazy.”
“Kids are going to be coming here (to Dubuque) now. This is going to be the regional skatepark. This is going to be the best park around. Not only because it’s brand new, but because we’ve done our homework, we’ve put in the leg work for this, we’ve been coming to meetings for years. There have been people invested in this project for so long now that they’ve done the steps that need to be taken to make sure that this is going to be a world-class park.”
“It’s going to foster a great sense of community and be a place that kids can get their physical activity in a place that they can stay out of trouble, a place that parents know that “Hey, my kid is part of this awesome community and is going to be safe and doing something they love.”
