A Skate park in Quincy is getting closer and closer to reality. Members of the Adams County Skate Park Movement wants to get the word out about skateboarding as a healty sporting activity. And are getting somewhat closer to the reality of a skatepark in Quincy.

They are doing the best they can right now raising money and awareness. They will be having a car wash and cookout, Saturday, June 2nd at St. James Lutheren Church parking lot at 17th and Jefferson streets. Their has been interests in the past few years to get  a nice skatepark build out side but for one reason or another it just did'nt work out. Now, the movement has kicked it up a notch by going to the Quincy Park District for some help, since the skatepark will be in one of Quincy's parks. You gotta give the skate park movement a big pat on the back to the kids and adults who want to see this happen. It will take time, many fundraisers and hope to get it going.
