The city of Marietta is another step closer to getting a new state of the art skate park.
Mayor Michael Mullen says the park has received a $5,000 grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation.
This is in addition to many other grants that will help fund the quarter of a million dollar facility.
Mayor Mullen says this particular grant is a very significant one.
"To be recognized with a grant from that foundation certainly was a prestigious thing for the local skaters, and says a lot about the quality of the design and the quality of park we're going to end up with," Mayor Mullen said.
The site at Indian Acres will go under construction in just a few weeks.
