Steelton skateboard park in the works

Posted

Ground was broken on May 8 on a new skateboard park in Steelton. The borough is turning little-used tennis courts in the municipal park at 3rd Alley and Franklin Street into the skateboard park, which is expected to be completed by the end of this summer.

Among those attending the groundbreaking was Dauphin County Commissioner George Hartwick, who is a former Steelton mayor.

The skateboard park received a $40,000 tourism grant and $90,000 in gaming grants from the local share of revenue derived from the Hollywood Casino at Penn National.

The borough is also getting a 5-year, $80,000 loan for the skateboard park from the Dauphin County Industrial Development Authority.
