A concrete skate park is in the process of being built on the 13-acre property it shares with the Windham Public Safety Building, 375 Gray Road.
Brooks believes that this time, the site will be kept clean because it will be home to “more different types of users.”
In addition to a skate park, there will be sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, walking trails and a playground constructed in several stages over the next few years.
The park’s users will be “stewards of their space,” Brooks said, and there will be “more people there using it for varied reasons” than there used to be.
The town also has a seasonal park ranger available from May through October who will spend some time at the park.
