Skate park construction underway

The new space is expected to open before the end of October

On Aug. 12, a crowd gathered at Middletown Community Park as the township officially broke ground on a new 8,600-square-foot skate park.

Funded by a combination of township investment, private contributions, and a grant from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the new facility is designed by local firm 5th Pocket Skateparks. It replaces the once-popular skate park that was damaged years ago during a storm.

“This is an important investment in the youth of this community,” said board of supervisors chairperson Tom Tosti. “While many residents already enjoy our great fields and facilities, the township is committed to expanding opportunities for those with many different interests.”

The skate park is expected to open before the end of October.
