STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) Stevens Point leaders have approved a new skateboard park in Bukolt Park.
The project had been discussed since 2005. Now construction will begin later this year.
The city will pay about 10-percent of the 300-thousand dollar cost. The rest will come from private fundraising efforts. The skateboard park committee says most of the money has already been raised. They're looking for another 20- to 30-thousand dollars in donations.
