      What do you think about a skate park?

      The "Adams County Skate Park Movement" group says the old tennis courts at Johnson Park would be perfect location for a skate park.

      A group of Quincy residents looking for a place to ride their skateboards might have found a location.

      The "Adams County Skate Park Movement" group says the old tennis courts at Johnson Park would be perfect for skaters.

      The group asked the Quincy Park District to consider its idea.

      Park district officials received a proposed plan Wednesday at its monthly board meeting.

      The plan included a design for a 56-foot-by-120 foot skate park.

      The group also said they'd raise the more than one hundred thousand dollars it would take to build the facility.

      "It could potentially be a nice addition and give these kids a place to go that's legitimate," Ed Seger, Quincy Park District executive director said. "They sometimes find themselves on stairs and things like that, potentially doing damage . "

      Park District Commissioners want to know what you think about building a skateboard park in Quincy.

      There is a public meeting Wednesday May 23rd from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Johnson Park shelter.
