Old or new, advocates want a skate park in Cincinnati

As Cincinnati city leaders continue to evaluate how to plan out spending for the next fiscal year, one spending request from the public has been voiced on multiple occasions: funding for a skate park. Two different local organizations advocating for skating-related projects are asking Cincinnati to provide funding in the 2024-2025 budget. Evan Walker is the founder of the Cincinnati Skatepark Project. He grew up skateboarding and at 40, he's still doing what he loves. "I grew up playing other sports, baseball, but skateboarding stuck with me," he said. "I've also seen it really build communities where they're kids who didn't fit into other sports, couldn't afford other sports."
