Manitowoc Skatepark

“Gliding up a ramp and kicking off a trick with a skateboard is Kris Koubaddy's favorite thing to do when the weather is nice, and he is working to expand the skatepark in Manitowoc so others can enjoy it, too.”

"Part of what I think about when I work on this stuff … if we can get more kids interested in skateboarding or biking or whatever they end up doing, I think that is a positive thing for the community," said Koubaddy, director of the Friends of Manitowoc Skatepark.  

His goal is to raise $90,000 to purchase and install new equipment in the skatepark at Miracles Park on Dewey Street. The additional equipment would give users the chance to flow back and forth on the ramps with momentum, instead of running and pushing themselves up each ramp, as they do now.
