The City of Snoqualmie used this grant to design and build the city’s first skate park, planned as a 6,000- to 7,000-square-foot facility in Snoqualmie Community Park, next to the community center. Many youth benefit from the skate park: 35 percent of the city’s residents are under 18-years-old and the prior to the Snoqualmie Skate Park’s construction the nearest skate park was 7 miles away. The newest skate park accommodates beginner and intermediate skateboarders and includes an above-grade design with concrete mini ramps, stair sets, banks, ledges, and rails. Snoqualmie contributed $175,000 in cash, a local grant, and donations of cash.
