Construction on Junction Skate Park in Haliburton Village could start this month.

The concrete structure would be located by the ball diamond, replacing the current skate park by Maple Bridge.

Dysart et al Recreation Program Coordinator Andrea Mueller says she hopes the new park will be complete by the end of the year.

Mueller adds the Skate Park Fundraising Committee has raised approximately $170,000 so far towards the project.

She says the design could change but if there are adjustments, they would be minor.
