A local Boy Scout is working to breathe new life into Findlay’s skate park. The Courier reports 15-year-old Seth Johns and a group of 20 friends are making repairs to the facility just off of Park Street. The city has given Johns $4,000 to complete the work. Johns is using the opportunity as his community service project to become an Eagle Scout.
The skate park was closed in July because of its declining condition. Boards were broken and the laminated surface was coming apart. There were also concerns about vandalism at the park.
Findlay public work superintendent Matt Stoffel believes the work can be finished sometime next month.
Johns is a Findlay High School Student and a member of Boy Scout Troop 313 in Van Buren.Read More →
