In January 2018, the Milford Village Council approved the design and budget for the proposed Milford Skate Park, to be located in Fairgrounds Park, near the Milford Civic Center and Milford Senior Center. Following this approval, private donations are being raised by the Project: S-Park Group with a targeted groundbreaking in Spring 2019. For information regarding both in-kind and monetary donations, please download the Milford Skate Park Donor Guide. Donated funds are held by the Village of Milford.
During the summer of 2016, a group of local students and their parents approached the Village about the potential of building a public skatepark in the community. An ad hoc Skate Park Committee, comprised of members of the Village Council, Village Parks & Recreation Commission, and members of the public, was established to oversee the project. The goal from the beginning was to construct a "plaza-style" skatepark suited for the needs of the local skating community in an area of the Village that was easily reached by walking or riding. Following discussions regarding potential locations, and private fundraising to cover the design costs, final approval was granted to proceed with designing a skatepark to be located within the eastern portion of Fairgrounds Park, adjacent to the Senior Center parking lot.
In 2017, Spohn Ranch was hired as the design/build contractor for this project. Subsequent ad hoc committee meetings and a public design charette resulted in the final design shown above. This park is designed to accommodate not only skating, but other non-motorized, wheeled activities, including BMX.
