APPLETON - Add skating to the list of activities a park in Appleton offers.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday in Telulah Park to begin building a skate park.

The skate park will feature ramps, bowls, and rails designed for skaters and bikers no matter their age or skill level.

Skate park supporters feel it's important to have a safe and functioning park.

Keevie Bremhorst, Friends of Appleton Skate Park, said, "there are so many youths as well as adults who have been waiting to pull out their bikes, their skateboards and to have a place in their own hometown that they can skate and share with other enthusiasts."

Construction on the skate park should be completed by the end of October.
