The park district's plans to build a skate park are on hold because of budget cuts and the state's budget crisis.

The Hesperia Recreation and Park District park board put a skate park to their list of projects several years ago, but the plans are put on hold until Maple Park is completed and more revenue is available.

According to park district general manager Cal Camara, it's unknown when the skate park will be built.

"Due to the current budget crisis and the very few grants available, the skate park has been put on hold," Camara said Tuesday, "But it continues to be a priority and interest to both the park board and community."

The park district was interested in building a skate park several years ago, but decided against it because they didn't want to compete with Gramps Vamps skate park in Hesperia and take away from their revenue. After Gramps Vamps went out of business, the park district put building a skate park on the agenda.

The skate park was initially going to be very large, but even a smaller or indoor park would still be too expensive, according to Camara.
