The dream of a determined bunch of youth and adults is finally taking shape in Perham.

Bids for a skateboard park were selected at the Perham City Council meeting April 12.


The bids came in substantially lower than earlier estimates. The concrete pad and the equipment will cost just under $40,000. The skateboard park committee raised nearly $55,000, and were anticipating construction and equipment costs as high as $60,000.
