On Tuesday (Sept.3), the kids in Bruderheim spent their first after-school evening at the new Cosmic Skateboard Park.
After five years without a skate park, the small town is now how to an almost $400,000 park. The most impressive part about it, is the fact that no municipal dollars went toward the project.
"From hot dog sales to lemonade stands and large companies and anybody in between; there's a very long list of donors that made that happen," explained mayor Karl Hauch.
Along with fundraisers, the town also received government grants and donations from larger companies.
"The original skateboard park we had was small and maybe worth $10,000 originally and it was condemned, so the kids lost their spot that they can do things at. We're so thankful that the town has taken this on as a labour of love," added Hauch.
For the grand opening, residents gathered at the park for free hot dogs and live entertainment. There was also a bouncy castle for the kids and fireworks later in the evening.
The park features ramps, rails and more.
