Kellogg teenagers raising money for proposed skateboarding park
Jennifer Howell is the mother of a 15-year-old skateboarder in Kellogg, and she says there’s a lack of safe concrete in the small town for skaters to grind. But she, parents of skaters and nearly 20 Kellogg teens have banded together to propose a place to skate.
Howell is one of two treasurers in the group “Kellogg Skate Park.” They are currently in the planning stages of designing and raising money for a local replacement to the skating facility at the now defunct Newton Aces Teen Club, which was closed by the Newton YMCA in 2011.
“What we have is a lack of recreation for kids in Kellogg,” she said. “The biggest problem is when Aces closed in Newton, and now they don’t have a regular meeting place.”
