Full story: Newsday

I wish they would build these skate parks all over Long Island. And that they would be easily accessible. I love to watch the young people skateboard in these parks. I also think it's a great way for our young people to let off steam, and therefore keep out of trouble, plus keep in shape and develope motor skills.

Well done Reilly family. From what I read Scott sounded like a wonderful young man taken from us far too early. The good thing is at least the young skateboarders will have something to do where they can stay active, burn some calories, etc. Beats hanging out at the mall anyday of the week. To the Reilly family may your beloved Scotty continue to RIP & may God be at your side forever. Scott must be smiling up above on this tribute. He would be loving this! Now if we can only dedicate a park to another Long Beach product who was also taken from us too soon at only 7 years of agev Ms "Smiling Kate" Flynn.
how about a limousine company named katie flynn's or maybe a "wrong way" sign with her picture on it.

Scott Reilly was probably was an amazing kid.

coprorate america builds yet another miserable badly designed park, made by some lame swing set company not real skateboarders

let skaters design parks not people who don't skate

These skateparks on long island all come out of playground catalogs. If I croak and they throw portable ramps on a tennis court in my name I'll be spinning in my grave. Trowel formed, skater-built concrete is a skatepark. The rest of this junk is nothing better than what astroturf mats are to golf.
