Shown above is a photo from Friday, August 15, at the site on which ground was broken for a skate park last week in Newton Township. The park, which has been in the works for seven years, according to Abington Skate Association, Inc. President Greg Pascale, will be a first class facility with two concrete levels, table tops and quarter pipes. Scranton Craftsman Excavating has been hired to do all the site work on the park, which is located next to the Newton Township Municipal building. The group is hoping to have the park completed by the end of September.
