A $450,000 grant has been awarded to the city of Norfolk, for the renovation of the Miracle Skatepark, located within the Veterans Memorial park complex.
The grant is from the Nebraska Department of Economic Developement.
The miracle Skatepark is considered to be among the best skate parks in the region.
In 2015, members of the citizens’ advocacy group, Good Life Action Sports, approached the Norfolk City Council to request upgrades to Miracle Skatepark.
Since then, the park has become a popular attraction.
Norfolk Mayor Josh Moenning hopes the renovated park will draw even more tourists to the area.
