It's been a bit of a slow start for the group working on the future Morden skatepark.


Wes Reimer says they are optimistic that will change with a recent contribution.

They received $10,000 from the Town of Morden to be given to Skate Concept, the group designing the park.

This will give them specific architectural drawings to present to potential donors.

Reimer says they have also approached other levels of government in hopes of receiving additional funding through various grants.

To encourage donations they will allow companies to do work in kind, in exchange for a tax deductible receipt.
