Long Awaited Skateboard Park In Hubbards Gets Funding

It's a big boost for skateboard lovers in the Hubbards area. The Nova Scotia government has approved $48,000 in grant money for a new skateboard park in Hubbards. The park is one of 21 projects in the Central Region receiving grants totalling $582,000. Community Services Minister Denise Peterson Rafuse says the park is way to get young people living health, active lifestyles. The Hubbards Area Recreation Association and Halifax Regional Municipality are building the skateboard park at the Hubbards Recreation Centre. They have been working on the project since 2008. Earlier this week, the government announced nearly $2 million for 59 projects province wide.
