A new “Urban Plaza” skate park will be constructed in Foster Park near the playground area later this summer. The design of the 12,455 sq. ft. skate park will have a street skating feel and will be close to the Walk of Excellence.

“This additional amenity will be centrally-located and provide easy access to the trails, and other youth and family centered activities,” said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight. “We have noticed an increase in skating activity and a transition to a more street style of skating in Kokomo. Building this in Foster Park will provide a quality venue for those wanting a street-style skate experience.”
