The City of Rochester wants more public input on the design of the future downtown public skatepark. There's an informational meeting scheduled for Thursday night.

The city wants an urban park space for skaters, walkers, runners and cyclists.

Friends of the ROC City Skate Park say the public will get a look at three final design plans.

The skatepark will be built under 490, on land at the east end of the Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Bridge. It's one of several projects part of the "ROC the Riverway" initiative.

The city held a public design workshop earlier this year asking for some feedback about what specifically to include in the park. Supporters talked about skating rails, bowls and pools, and now three designs will be presented for more public comment.

The skate park design meeting is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Frederick Douglass R-Center gym located at 999 South Avenue. It's open to the public and your input is encouraged.

Construction is expected to start next summer and the skate park is scheduled to open sometime next fall.
