These kids and adults that use the park whould be grateful they have a place. Many other cities do not have a place for people to go because of personal injury and city risks, and they end up in parking lots or any place they can find something to jump over or on. I have an idea. Since times are tight, and this does nothing for the majority of citizens that live in the city maybe some of the boarders could get to gether and hold some sort of fund raiser. But knowing the kids today they want it handed to them because most think it's owed them.

Wow, 12 skaters were using the park in a city of a population of nearly $75,000! What a waste of tax dollars. How many of the 12 would be better off at home studying.
