Now that the new skate park has a location, the city is gathering public input on its design.
The Issaquah City Council approved a parcel at Tibbetts Valley Park for the construction of the skate park May 19. The budgeted $350,000 will go to remove the current one, which caused ongoing community concern due to the presence of drug use and illicit activities, and build a new one sometime in 2015.
The Parks & Recreation Department held the first of three community public input meetings June 18 to collect ideas from local residents about what they would like to see in the new attraction.
