Designers of Lexington's second skate park, in Berry Hill Park, want public input on what users want.
Oregon-based Dreamland Skatepark staff will host a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. April 8 at the Lexington Public Library on Main Street to get input from skaters and community leaders on design ideas for the park. Lexington's first skate park was built in Woodland Park in 1999. A smaller skate pad was built at Kirklevington Park in 2012.
The Urban County Council approved a $500,000 contract with Dreamland Skateparks earlier this month for as much as $500,000. Friends for Skateparks, a nonprofit, and others are trying to raise an additional $500,000 for construction of the park.
