There will be a barbecue fund-raiser for the Waynesville Skate Park from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, at the Waynesville Recreation Center. The cost is $5 per sack lunch, which will contain a sandwich, chips and a drink.
Construction will begin late summer. The park will be 8,000 square feet and located at the site of the old horse ring on Vance Street in Waynesville.
The Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department is also selling T-shirts promoting the new Waynesville Skate Park. The shirts are $10 each and may be purchased at the Waynesville Recreation Center. All proceeds will go towards the cost of the park.
