Whither the Northfield Skate Park?

The Cuyuna Range Youth Center in Crosby, MN had a fundraiser breakfast on Saturday morning during the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Festival and I stopped in for a breakfast burrito.

They’d just had the grand opening for the new youth center building and I got the grand tour from Dick Gunter, one of the adult board members. It’s quite a facility, on a par with we now have here with the Northfield Union of Youth‘s new building for The Key.

Crosby also has a very nice skate park for its youth, right in Memorial Park in the center of town, adjacent to City Hall.  And it made me wonder what has happened with the Union of Youth Skate Park/Plaza which had raised $40,000 or more at one point.  The last update here on LoGro was in late September, 2009 when the temporary skate park at Babcock Park was disassembled after three months of use. The Union of Youth Skate Park/Plaza web page has not been updated in years.

Anyone know what’s up?
