Tyler Woods from Hardcore Design Studios spoke to the meeting of the Paris Kiwanis Club on June 14 about creating the Chris Claypool Memorial Skateboard Park located at Legion Park on East Main Street in Paris. The Paris Kiwanis Club is working with Hardcore to finish building the park. Hardcore, based in Joplin, Mo., built the Louisville Skateboard Park. Woods talked about the design of the park and the benefits of it. Hardcore will create a conceptual design for the park and work to help raise funds for its creation. Chris Claypool, a local businessman, died about six years ago. Groundbreaking of the park took place in June 2009. Construction is scheduled to begin in August.
