After a groundswell of grass-roots public support, Roanoke City Council passed an amended Parks And Recreation master plan today that DOES include a skatepark – albeit 5 to 10 years out. City Manager Bob Cowell also said at today’s meeting it is possible they could find a home for a temporary skatepark once the facility under the Wasena bridge comes down when that is replaced.
