SKATE PARK PROPOSED
Skateboard enthusiasts are pushing for a skate park to be built in New London. Charlie King is founder of the New London Skate Park Association. He says his group has scheduled several events this year to raise money for the project, which would cost between 80 and 100-thousand dollars. King says Fulton Park would be a perfect spot for the park because it has 13-thousand square feet of available space. He’s envisioning a so-called street plaza design with small ramps that would be easy to navigate for skateboarders of all levels. The project would require city approval.
