Radtke Park chosen for skate park

Oct. 18, 2012

Radtke Park at 84th Street and National Avenue is the best site for a skate park, the West Allis Common Council decided Tuesday.

The city hopes to use federal community development block grant money to create a skate park with the help of a generous private donor, so no property taxes would be used.

Now designing can go forward with a target completion by Christmas. Construction would be next spring.

The city studied 16 potential sites and Radtke Park had more of what city officials were looking for, they said.
