Mitchell's skate park project has attracted provincial funding through the Building Sustainable Communities Program.
Brian Esau represents Mitchell on Hanover's council. He notes they began working on the skate park a few years ago after they got several requests from young people in the area.
"Not everybody is into Baseball and Hockey and so [a young man] brought this request forward. We had a second one come forward and so then the rec department looked at it and we started planning,” Notes Esau. “We are putting up a 5,200 square foot skatepark here. We think it will bring a lot of diversity to the community and a lot more options for the children to stay active."
