>>Reading To Get Its Own Skatepark
(Reading, PA) -- Reading is going to be getting its own skatepark. Reading City Council voted during a meeting held yesterday to spend about 241-thousand-dollars to start the construction of the Canal Street Skate Park at 601 Canal Street. The Reading Skatepark Association has received grants to cover most of the project, but it asked the council to allocate some additional funds to help get construction started sooner. Officials say they hope to have the new park open by July of next year.
