SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A group of students in Springfield Township are taking action to bring a new skate park to their area.

Ten junior high and high school students approached township trustees at a meeting Monday night about the park. They say they would like a skate park to attract a league of skaters from across Ohio and the country.

The trustees put the ball in the students' court, saying if they can organize fundraisers and raise grant money, then the township will provide a space for the park, such as Lincoln Green Park.

Trustee Andy Glenn says he was excited to see the kids take action. He says doing it this way will give the students ownership and pride.

"If these kids are so motivated that they are willing to go out and identify some grant funding for the project, or raise some money on their own, that tells us that there's definitely a need for this in the community, and there's definitely a segment of the community that would be served by this," Glenn said.

The students are looking into a national foundation and other ways to earn money. Trustees say they will donate space for the students to hold fundraisers.
