As a group of young people with skate boards, scooters and bikes watched, a ribbon cutting was held at the dedication of the Ranger Skate park Saturday, November 19th. Steve Gerdes gave a little history of how the park came to be. It seems several kids mentioned to the Ranger City librarian, Diana McCullough, that the city needed a skate park. McCullough encouraged the kids to start up a petition, which they did. The Ranger Economic Development Corp. took on the task of bringing a skate park to Ranger. Metal ramps, rails and a half pipe were purchased before they even had a home for it all. Richard and Anita Squyres, owners of Sherri’s Pizza and Arcade, donated the lot across the street from their business for the park. Gerdes thanked a list of people and entities that had contributed to bringing a skate park to the kids of the area. The Ranger Skate Park is in the 500 block of W. Main in Ranger just a couple of blocks from the City Park and swimming pool.
