ALLOW BMX IN THE SKATEPARK!!!!!!!!!! Greenlawn is good for bikes but the thing is skaters can still ride and cut us off and greenlawn is too small for a bunch of bmxers they said there would be a dirt bmx park close to the new skatepark but then i heard it got denied so watch out skaters because BMX PROTEST!!!! ALLOW BIKES IN THE PARK!!!!!!!!

Went there on July 2,2010.

So far it looks great! All concrete construction,2 pools,2 pyramids typical ledges rails etc.

I talked with one of the construction guys he thinks it may be ready to skate soon. He said they were moving along with the work at a fast pace and hopes to keep it up. If the progress stays at this pace he believes it to be complete by mid August.

Use Greenlawn!!! Stop your whining and work to get your own park.
BMXers were nowhere when this park was being planned for the last 5 years and when you see the finiched product then you bitch. Stop riding on the work that the skaters did to get this park built and get your own built.

O don't worry I will bitch because i saw it and it is perfectly suitible for bikes its alot closer to my house then greenlawn and its in the middle of the bmx capital of town of huntington all of us bikers are gonna gather and protest the oppression and skaters and bmxers can get along i have alot of skater friends who think its unfair that i don't get to ride the park with them because i ride bmx bikes i will have a protest because there are more bikers than skaters in the town of huntington and eastnorthport is the bmx capital of T.O.H. i bet since ur a skater youve heard of Arizona's Reed skatepark in Mesa and that bmx protest that happened in 2002 really inspired me to fight for my rights us bmxers all ways get screwed over one way or another by the town SKATE ONLY SKATEPARKS and security etc. we are gonna do something about it now don't panic if my petition for a new bmx park gets approved everything will be cool but if it gets denied us bmxers will show up surrounding the enpt skatepark and protest against the discrimination that cities levy against kids who ride bikes I asked the security about the "dirt jump park" they said it wasen't gonna happen and also i asked because i heard about the "phase 2 bmx park" they said that wasen't gonna happen those ramps are better than greenlawns i gotta say and btw everyone thinks putting a tree in the pyramid is the stupidest idea ever and skaters rub in in us bmxers faces about they get a new park and they have an awsome bowl which really makes us pissed

You still do not answer my response about not doing anything about getting your own facility. The Greenlawn park was built through the efforts of skaters and you get to use that facility. This park was built through the efforts of a few advocates and took many years to get done. Now you want to say you are entitled to use it. Go ride on a golf course and see how fast you get kicked off. Bmx riders and skaters take different lines and cover ground at different rates making collisions inevitable. Reed Park in Arizona is now a mainly BMX park due to this fact. Again this is a skatepark not a BMX park
