Locals petition for skatepark to be re-named

Locals are rallying together to re-name the Wonthella Skatepark after local skater Jake Howe, who passed away on New Years Day.

With a dedicated Facebook account with over 2,000 users, the community along with Jake’s family and friends are petitioning to get the skate park named in his honour.

Jake was one of the original designers of the current skate park and has been involved since the park’s inception in 2000.

There will be a meet tomorrow at 5:30pm at PCYC to discuss upcoming extensions to the skatepark. Anyone who knew the great work that Jake did and are interested in the petition are invited to attend.
