By this time next year, a new skate-park should be open in Ann Arbor's Veterans Memorial Park. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, City Council last night approved a construction contract in excess of one-million dollars.

After years of effort and fundraising, the proposed skate park in Ann Arbor's Veterans Memorial Park will soon become a reality.
