Vacant Fire Station Becomes Roller-Sports Park

Vacant Fire Station Becomes Roller-Sports Park

A former fire station in Mankato that was transformed in a temporary skateboard park is drawing raves from teens who say it turned out better than they expected, and from neighbors who say their early concerns are fading.

The park opened Saturday to positive reviews. The fire station was vacated by the city and is up for sale, so officials figured it'd be a good place for a temporary park until a new roller-sports park is finished later this year.

The park was packed this weekend with kids on skateboards, inline skates and scooters.

Eighteen-year-old Connor Hopkins says he's pleased with how smooth the ramps are.

Eleanor Kottke lives right across the street. She says neighbors were initially worried about noise, but instead it's a place for kids to have good, clean fun.
