We held our second information session, the GWL Skatepark Public Forum 2.0, for Greenwood Lake and the surrounding communities this past Thursday, March 29 at the Elk’s Lodge in Greenwood Lake, NY. We had a large turnout, with a few special guests including Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer, Warwick Town Supervisor Mike Sweeton, and Warwick Mayor Michael J. Newhard.
During the presentation we shared all of our recent successes and progress over the second half of 2017, then announced our plan in 2018 to start reaching out to the surrounding communities of Tuxedo, Warwick, West Milford, Chester, Monroe, etc., and raising awareness of our project in those communities. Our intention is for the GWL Skatepark in Memory of Dale Hirrel to be the only skatepark of it’s kind within a 25-mile radius, attracting skateboarders, bikers, scooter riders, and their families from around the area to GWL, adding to the town’s outdoor draw and in turn bringing more business to our own local entrepreneurs and business owners.
