The cities of Monmouth and Independence are working with a group of local volunteers, known as the Monmouth Independence Skate Park Committee to construct a new regional skate park facility. The new facility would be located just west of the existing skate park facility on the other side of the baseball field next to Hogan Rd N. The goal of the skate park project is to address the ever-changing recreational needs of our larger, more diverse population and to ensure the cities' facilities reflect those current and future trends.
Over the course of three (3) years, the Skate Park Committee has:
Conceptual Skate Park Design
- Officially partnered with the City of Monmouth, who will be serving as the project fiscal agent,
- Secured an official location for the new skate park,
- Raised money to receive the initial conceptual design from Dreamland Skateparks,
- Initiated fundraising efforts to build the new skate park.
