Marshfield Common Council Discusses Skate Park

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022 -- 11:01 AM

At last night's Common Council - City of Marshfield meeting, citizens of Marshfield appeared before the council to address the remediation of Braem Park Skate Park.

The reason for the discussion on the proposed remediation of the Braem Park Skate Park was that recently a young Marshfield community member passed away from a drug overdose. This young person was an active patron of the skate park so it became a place of remembrance. Artful graffiti started to appear in remembrance of the young person, so naturally, some concern was raised regarding that some things may get out of control.

After discussion with community members, including the father of the individual that passed due to a drug overdose, a motion was passed that would form a committee that would include members of the community, high school faculty, and council members or member. This committee would present designs and ideas for Braem Park Skate Park to the Marshfield Parks & Rec Dept. which would present the proposed designs for the skate park to the Common Council.

It was also brought up that are youth would hopefully be part of this committee.
