Skate park focus turns to Lake Mayer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Efforts to build skate park on Tybee Island have shifted to Lake Mayer.

Organizers and Chatham County are working on a deal to build the skate part at Lake Mayer.

The volunteers organizing it wanted to build on the beachfront, but the City Council didn't like that plan.

"It's the centerpiece of our island for one thing and you know, property on Tybee is very valuable. So for the city to have a tract of land of this size, we want to make sure that it's being used in the best way possible," said Kathryn Williams.
