Tracy Willette, director of Bangor's Parks and Recreation Department, said the city has cleared the environmental permitting process.
The plan now is to put the skate park in Hayford Park.
Willette said the skatepark has been a lengthy project.
"The next step will be to invite some of the skaters in and get some feedback on what they're looking for and get the documents out so we can start that process and hopefully get construction here in the next few months," he said.
Willette said city officials hope to break ground on the skate park by late summer or early fall but it depends on how the bidding process goes.
