Municipal Council works to provide great recreational spaces to residents and visitors. From riverfront kayaking, to playgrounds and rolling hills in the north end, there is a lot for everyone to enjoy!
Over the years, skateparks have been "dropping in" to towns outside of major cities. Municipal Council in Nov. 2021 rode the wave by approving $1 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds for the installation of a skate park at Poley Park.(1) Los Angeles-based Spohn Ranch Skateparks was contracted to create and build the skatepark during council's November 2023 work session meeting.(2) As part of their contract, community design meetings are being hosted to get input on what features would work for the park. Come join us!
Meeting dates are Feb. 1 and Feb. 29 at Municipal Hall at 6 p.m.
You can view the Feb. 1 meeting presentation by Spohn Ranch's Jason Baldessari here: https://www.norristown.org/DocumentCenter/View/5919/Norristown-Skate-Park-Design-Presentation-Feb12024
