Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament has donated $40,000 toward the completion of a skateboard park in Glendive, Montana, where he grew up.
An avid skater, Ament has requested that the park feature an “amoeba pool.” a circular, concave structure with two chambers that’s easy to handle for beginners.
Ament said, “If (a town has) a baseball field and basketball court and a swimming pool, (it) should probably have a skate park, too. (It’s) a great place to get your energy out and explore your creativity.” The skate park still needs $28,000 to be completed. (Audio Ink)
