9/19/17 – Organizers working to bring a new skateboard park to Beaver Dam say the project will have to wait until spring. The Beaver Dam Operations Committee last night rejected two bids to pour a 60-foot-by-100-foot concrete pad. The skateboard park would join an existing dirt biking track which is across a small pond from the city’s newest dog park. Matt O’Brion with the Beaver Dam Community Skateboard and BMX Park Committee says the organization has around $27-thousand dollars to spend on the concrete. The lowest bid was $53-thousand. The group already has several skateboard obstacles and continues to seek financial and in-kind donations to help get the project complete. The Patrick Parker Conley Park as it is called is located on a patch of land off Fletcher Road between Beichl Avenue, County Road E and Highway 151.
