Town Supervisor Ciaran Hanna and the Perinton Town Board recently announced plans for a new skatepark to be located in Perinton Park, as well as an opportunity for the community to provide input on the proposed project. The Town has engaged with local skatepark advocates for more than a year in the development of this first-of-its-kind amenity in Perinton.
The Town is early in the planning stages of this project and actively sought community input before the design and site characteristics are determined. The Town has also identified priorities for the project; a space that will be attractive to individuals of all ages, abilities, and interests related to wheeled sports. Plans also include publicly accessible pathways to bathrooms and other amenities available within the park, as well as a multi-use space for learn-to-skate programs and special events. To address the stigma around graffiti, the Town would like to incorporate a community art space within the skatepark.
The first skatepark design workshop was held on November 17, 2022. Participants provided input to help shape the design of our new skatepark. A second design workshop took place on January 31, 2023, where community members were invited to provide input on the designs.
